After a quick stop in Coeur d' Alene, Ted Cruz made his way to the treasure valley to take part in the Cruz in a victory rally at Boise State.
"I am thrilled at the support we have here in Idaho. We did a big event in Coeur d'Alene earlier today. We did a big event here, the energy and passion we've got on the ground is incredible," explained Cruz.
In his address Cruz said that the top priorities for his campaign are jobs, security, and freedom, a plan that has sat well with many prominent political leaders here in Idaho. Cruz has been endorsed by a list of people including former State Senator Russ Fulcher, state treasurer Ron Crane, and congressman Raul Labrador, and Raul Labrador and he believes he can gain the support of the people.
"I think we are poised to have a very very good day in Idaho," explained Cruz.
The crowd got especially excited when Cruz brought up the issue of second amendment rights, a big issue here in Idaho. 
Cruz even went in depth on his views of another hot button topic for Idahoans, the control of federal lands.
"Far too much land, particularly in the west is owned by the federal government. It's not right, it doesn't make sense. We need to transfer that land back to the states, or even better, back to the people," said Cruz.
While Cruz is making big strides in his campaign, Saturday winning Kansas and Maine, he said that in order to beat Donald Trump. the remainder of the Republican party needs to work together.
What we are seeing is many of the good supporters who ran in this race coming and joining us because we are the one campaign that has beaten and repeatedly can beat Donald Trump. If you are a supporter right now of Marco Rubio and John Kasich, both good honorable men, both men I respect, but if you don't want to see Donald Trump as the nominee then I invite you to join our team," explained Cruz.
