Ted Cruz’s New Ad Strategy: Just Smile and Nod


Texas firebrand Ted Cruz is campaigning through the American South in a rock band style tour bus – sweeping up Tea Party support (and money) as he goes.

Ted’s “Cruz to the White House” tour is making for some prime B-roll opportunities for cutting new ads – all of which are chalk full of wide crowd shots and cuts of Ted Cruz’s fiery oration.

The tour culminates August 21, at what Cruz is calling a “Rally for Religious Freedom” in Des Moines, IA. According to the online invitation, the rally is going to feature “special guests victimized by government persecution.” Um, ok…

The Cruz Country tour is making stops in South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas.

Ted Cruz Strategically Positions Himself In Other Red States

While establishment candidates like Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Scott Walker are focusing on early primary states like Iowa and New Hampshire, Ted Cruz is trying to pull the rug out from under them in other red states.

One of Cruz’s advisors told Politico that, “The Cruz campaign believes Bush, Walker and Rubio have made a flawed political calculation to compete in the establishment bracket and, therefore, position themselves as moderates in the race leaving Cruz as the only well-funded conservative candidate.”

We will see how that plays out in the primary.
