Cruz draws a crowd in Raleigh 

  RALEIGH – Presidental candidate drew a stifling crowd at the NCGOP Convention for a breakfast Saturday morning. Delegates stood in lines ten deep all the way around him for the chance to take a picture with him. He calmly greeted each one and listened to their concerns and thanks, most expressing frustrations with the current administration. 

Surrounded by people holding signs orwearing tshirts emblazoned with “Courageous Conservative,” Cruz called for abolishing the IRS and instituting a flat tax.
