MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz came to the Lowcountry to kickoff his southern campaign tour.
The campaign swing is through eight southern states and started Friday afternoon in Mount Pleasant.
The Liberty Tap Room was packed with hundreds of people many of whom were forced to watch from upstairs.
Senator Cruz' appearance comes a day after the presidential debate in Cleveland.
Cruz took jabs at President Obama and his policies, and warned the proposed nuclear arms deal with Iran is profoundly dangerous.
"That means billions of dollars in the control of the American government will go to jihadists who will use them to murder Americans, to murder Israelis, to murder Europeans," Cruz said."Those are the facts."
Cruz predicted the Iran nuclear deal will be the hottest topic of debate suiting the presidential primaries.
The next stop for Cruz is Savannah.
