COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has formed his leadership team in Wisconsin and it includes some of the state's most conservative Republican lawmakers.
Wisconsin state Sen. Duey Stroebel announced Monday that he will be serving as Cruz's campaign chairman in Wisconsin. The state's presidential primary is seven weeks away on April 5.
Cruz said in a statement that the Wisconsin lawmakers will help him bring together "strong conservatives" to help him win the state. Cruz was campaigning this week in South Carolina ahead of its Feb. 20 primary.
Other Wisconsin lawmakers endorsing Cruz are Reps. Andre Jacque, Jesse Kremer, Dean Knudson, Adam Neylon, Bob Gannon and David Craig.
Cruz's rival Marco Rubio has already locked up endorsements from other Republican leaders, including Assembly Speaker Robin Vos.
