Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) met with some of the most influential grassroots conservative leaders and activists in Iowa on Saturday as he tested the waters for a potential 2016 run.

Cruz spoke at the Iowa State Fair and the Family Leadership Summit. According to Steve Deace, the conservative Iowa talk radio host, Cruz met with various grassroots leaders who would be needed to win the nation's first-in-the-nation caucuses.

Deace told Breitbart News that many Iowans think Cruz would be the perfect presidential candidate, frequently telling him that they want a "fighter" like Cruz who is unafraid to take on Democrats and the GOP establishment. Deace compared Cruz to Clint Eastwood -- after candidates who were "nice" did nothing to stop America's decline, the country, especially conservative primary voters, may want a vigilante sheriff like Cruz.

At the Family Leadership Summit, Cruz discussed some of the many brawls he has been in on behalf of conservatives and some of the victories conservatives have had on Second Amendment and religious liberty issues. He vowed to repeal "every word" of Obamacare and abolish the IRS, while denouncing Common Core. He emphasized that the House's border bill, which prevented President Barack Obama from using federal funds to enact more executive amnesty, is a deterrent against more illegal immigration.

I have had the pleasure of meeting and talking with the Senator.  He is my choice if he runs.

Finally, someone who can excite the base and draw independents to the polls!

Establishment republicans (democrat light) Will never allow it. Just like Thad Cochran.
 Which just goes to show their true colors. They want what's best for them, not us.

Once upon a time Mr Smith went to Washing ton to serve the people. Now it's to get rich, and stay there.
