A Ted Cruz supporter from Iowa who has been blind for two years said he “can still see through Hillary Clinton” during a campaign stop by the Texas senator and 2016 Republican hopeful on Tuesday.
“I’m almost 100 percent blind,” he said. “Been that way for two years now, but I can still see through Hillary Clinton.”
Cruz and other onlookers chuckled at the remarks. According to the New York Times, the man whispered the joke to Cruz during his stop in Onawa, Iowa, before Cruz suggested he repeat the quote in front of the press.
Cruz is in the midst of a six-day tour of Iowa as the critical caucuses approach for the state, where he is leading in the polls.
