Ted Cruz to hold Baton Rouge rally Monday
BATON ROUGE - The campaign for Republican presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz said he will be in Baton Rouge on Jan. 11 for a rally.
The Texas senator will meet with Louisiana supporters at the BR Marriott's Grand Ballroom from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Organizers posted a link for attendees to RSVP on the Louisiana Cruz Crew Facebook page.
Cruz will be jockeying for attention that day, sandwiched between two other high-profile events. Governor-elect John Bel Edwards will be sworn in earlier Monday, with the inauguration scheduled to kick off at the state Capitol at 11:30 a.m. An inauguration ball will be held that evening at Celtic Studios.
Football fans at Cruz's rally will also hope the senator is on time: the national championship game for the College Football Playoffs begins at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN between No. 2 Alabama and No. 1 Clemson.
