“Not only would this be a heck of a debate, but it would also be a terrific opportunity to generate millions of dollars for the veterans,” the Keep the Promise I and II PACs said in a joint statement Wednesday night.
The groups’ statement came just as Cruz announced he set a time and location for his proposed one-on-one debate with rival Donald Trump.
“He and I are the leading candidates in this state right now, so how about the two of us, in a one-on-one debate, mano y mano?” Cruz said Wednesday at a rally in West Des Moines.
“And I’m going to propose a venue, Western Iowa Tech in Sioux City,” he added. “We already have it reserved — 8:00 Saturday night, a two-hour, one-on-one debate.”
