CRUZ MEETS LENO
It was inevitable. This must mean he’s running for sure in 2016. Sen. Ted Cruz makes an initial foray next week into the peculiar but effective populist politics of late-night TV. On Nov. 8, he will appear on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
And the night’s agenda? The Texas Republican will discuss the government shutdown, the debt ceiling, Washington gridlock and the state of the Republican Party, according to the network.
