The visit comes two days before the Republican caucus in Nevada.

His wife, Heidi Cruz, visited Pahrump on Sept. 14 in support of her husband.

Cruz is the highest-profile Republican candidate to visit Pahrump this election cycle. Former candidate Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky, visited the Bob Ruud Center on Oct. 28, and Ben Carson stumped at the Pahrump Nugget on Nov. 23.
