When conservative talker Steve Deace endorsed Ted Cruz for President, Wednesday, it was big news. CNN covered it, Bloomberg covered it and Politico covered it, just to name a few. Cruz even posted the audio of Deace's announcement on his website. The conservative talker has been a fixture on Iowa radio for more than a decade and has become very influential. He was instrumental in recalling three judges in Iowa who struck down a democratically enacted state law affirming traditional marriage. Deace is syndicated by USA Radio Networks and heard on over 50 stations.
