Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was in town Monday campaigning for Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Darryl Glenn.

“I think Colorado deserves someone who is independent, who is strong, who knows who he is working for, which is the men and women of this state and not the party bosses in Washington,” Cruz said.

The primary election in Colorado is in eight days.

The only contested statewide race is the GOP Primary for U.S. Senate. Five Republicans are competing to unseat incumbent Democrat Michael Bennet.
