Ted Cruz to rally for Nathan Deal, David Perdue

Gov. Nathan Deal and Republican Senate hopeful David Perdue just announced an nine-day "Victory Tour" starting next week, and firebrand Texas Sen. Ted Cruz -- a possible presidential contender -- is slated to join them.

The Cruz event will be Oct. 25 at a farm in Bloomingdale, outside Savannah. In other 2016 news, Peach Pundit reported that Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., will appear with Perdue on Oct. 24 in McDonough. And we're still waiting for a date for Hillary Clinton's visit to Georgia to help Democrat Michelle Nunn.
