FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO):  Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is making a stop in Fort Wayne.

To get tickets online, visit eventbrite. 

The Senator from Texas has announced a rally is scheduled at the Grand Wayne Center in downtown Fort Wayne.  The rally is set for 11 a.m. on Thursday, April 28th.

The event listing shows that Carly Fiorina will also be at the Fort Wayne event. The site also has a listing for a Cruz rally at 2 p.m. Monday.

Allen County Republican Party Chairman Steve Shine says Cruz’s visit is an historic one, noting that neither John McCain nor Mitt Romney made stops in Fort Wayne during their Presidential runs in 2008 or 2012.

Shine also said he’s hopeful Donald Trump will hold an event in Fort Wayne, like Cruz.

In the latest CBS News YouGov poll, Donald Trump leads Ted Cruz in Indiana by a 40 percent to 35 percent margin.  John Kasich has 20 percent of the vote.

Meanwhile, Trump continues to lead Republican candidates with 954 delegates, just 283 short to win the nomination.  With 57 delegates in play in Indiana, the state could be a tipping point to either leading the way to a Trump presidential bid or forcing a contested convention.

Trump has announced an appearance in Indianapolis on Wednesday, Democrat Hillary Clinton will make a stop in St. Joseph County on Tuesday, and Democrat Bernie Sanders is expected to visit Purdue University on Wednesday.

WOWO’s Pat Miller will be emceeing the event at the Grand Wayne Center. When Ben Carson visited Fort Wayne in December, WOWO’s Charly Butcher emceed that event.

So is it Wednesday or Sunday? That article didn’t really make it very clear.

There are two separate Ted Cruz rallies scheduled in Fort Wayne. The one on Wednesday has been postponed to an undetermined date. The Sunday one is still on, but we’re awaiting details.
