Ted Cruz is under attack. The Texas senator's rise in Iowa presidential surveys has attracted criticism from all sides.
America's Renewable Future, a bipartisan political group with the support of ethanol and agricultural industry workers, unleashed new digital and radio ads attacking Cruz in Iowa. The senator's opposition to ethanol mandates has drawn the ire of ARF, whose ads claim that Cruz's policy proposals "threaten rural Iowa and thousands of jobs."
"Politicians like Ted Cruz are the worst kind: Hypocrites," the ad says. "There are millions of reasons Ted Cruz supports Big Oil instead of Iowa farmers. Call politician Ted Cruz. Tell him to stop being a hypocrite and support Iowa jobs."
Cruz opposes the Renewable Fuel Standard, which determines the amount of ethanol and other renewable fuels that must be blended into gasoline. Annette Sweeney, a former Republican state representative and ARF co-chair, said Cruz has not been honest about his opposition to the Renewable Fuel Standard.

America’s Renewable Future.
LOL yeah, they’re a reliable source of info.
“the ad says. “There are millions of reasons Ted Cruz supports Big Oil instead of Iowa farmers”
Name 2, and I’m for Trump.
Cruz has never hid his position on this.
I fail to see the problem.
Cruz opposes corporate welfare to Archer Daniels Midland.
I wonder who Annette Sweeney supports or who is paying for the add.
Opposing Welfare (corporate or individual) is a bedrock principle of conservatism.
Absolutely, politicians like Ted Cruz, those that actually do the job of representing their constituents in the manner they promised to during their campaigns are the worst most despicable kind, how dare they have the courage and integrity of their convictions. The bastards!
“God has blessed America with abundant natural resources and we ought to be producing everything ... but it shouldn’t be Washington picking winners and losers,”
The left is getting more and more scared of Cruz.
yeah : )
Right. This rhetoric of this ad is right out of the liberal democrat playbook. Hope this crony capitalism supporting attack ad doesn’t work.
Corn is food.
Ethanol is an expensive fuel that ruins engines and INCREASES pollutants per mile.
Don’t let politicians use your tax dollars to subsidize food waste and automotive inefficiency.
This is why Iowa should not be first.
Nor New Hampshire.
SOS.. same ol' $hit, Attack and diminish.
American politics.. stuck on stupid.
The Corn Lobby backs this punitive tax and corporate welfare scheme on middle class Americans for the benefit of rich corporations:
“A bipartisan team is co-chairing Americaâs Renewable Future: former Lt. Gov. Patty Judge, a Democrat; former state Rep. Annette Sweeney, a Republican; and Bill Couser, president of Couser Cattle Company and co-founder of Lincolnway Energy.
The effort is being financed by the Iowa Corn Growers Association, the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association, Growth Energy and other partners, organizers said.”
“This is why Iowa should not be first.”
When you look back over history Iowa has not had a great influence on the outcome of the elections.
And it wouldn't need to be subsidized by the other 44 or so states which don't grown corn for ethanol.
