Ted Cruz in Tennessee with Michelle Garcia and Tommy Vallejos
Hispanic Nashville ^ | August 11, 2015 | John Lamb

U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz passed through Nashville yesterday, stopping to speak to supporters in nearby Murfreesboro and Franklin. Cruz had previously announced a state Leadership Team that includes Murfreesboro businesswoman Michelle Garcia and Clarksville Mayor Pro-Tem and pastor Tommy Vallejos. While pressing the flesh, Cruz posed for a photo with Garcia and Vallejos.

From the Cruz campaign press release on the Tennessee Leadership Team:

Michelle Garcia is a wife, a mother of two, and a Tennessee native who strongly supports conservative principles and who eagerly strives to serve her community. Michelle speaks fluent Spanish and is actively involved with Hispanic outreach. Professionally, Michelle has over 16 years of experience as an association manager and meeting planner, in addition to small business management and ownership experience.

Tommy Vallejos is a retiree of the US Army, where he proudly served over 21 years and was awarded the Bronze Star. He is the Care Pastor for Faith Outreach Church in Clarksville, and he is also the first ever Latino county commissioner in our state, currently serving his second term representing Montgomery County. Tommy is a dedicated husband, father and grandfather, and he is an unapologetic advocate for Jesus Christ. Garcia and Vallejos are also members of the conservative political group Latinos for Tennessee.

I envy all of these people who get to meet Ted. Will he ever come to Pennsylvania?

Will Cruz come to PA? He has come to GA several times; But his campaign staff pretty much don’t let us know. (We have to find out from a Walker supporter who believes in being fair to all conservatives.)

When Cruz staff send me all those emails asking for money, why can’t they also say “Oh, by the way, Ted will be at the bookstore near your house.”

Rafael Cruz (the dad) will be in GA Wed,
19 6:30 - 9:30 pm at Tanners Row Alehouse,
554 W Main St, Buford, GA. (Far NE suburb of Atlanta).

Hispanic Patriots is hosting Rafael Cruz at their 4th event.

Both Hispanics and non-Hispanics are welcome. Without a big name speaker they typically draw 50 people of which about 25 are the same every time and 25 are new faces.
Evening mid-week vs Saturday seems to change who shows up.
