Cruz Super PAC ups ante for one-on-one Cruz-Trump debate

The pressure is on Donald Trump to debate fellow Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz.

From the moment the GOP front-runner made it clear that he was skipping the debate Thursday in Des Moines, Iowa (see here what he will be doing instead) — the last one before the Iowa caucus — Cruz challenged Trump to a two-man debate.

Now a Cruz super PAC, KeepThePromise, has upped the ante considerably. It promised to donate $1.5 million to veteran support organizations if the real estate developer will join the Texas firebrand on the debate stage before the February 1 caucus.

It tweeted:

Cruz appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” Wednesday and told host Sean Hannity that he’d already reserved a venue at Western Iowa Tech Community College in Sioux City, Iowa, for Saturday night at 8:00 p.m.

Trump can choose any person he wants as a moderator. (And we know who it definitely won’t be.)

Cruz added that he felt Trump owed it to the voters of Iowa to answer their questions and concerns one last time before the caucus.
