The visit comes two days before the Republican caucus in Nevada.
Cruz is a junior senator for Texas seeking the Republican nomination for president. After winning the caucus in Iowa, he finished third in the New Hampshire primary. He is trailing businessman Donald Trump in the polls ahead of the South Carolina primary on Saturday.
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.
