BOSTON (AP)- Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas is heading to New Hampshire as part of a summer swing through early voting states on the presidential calendar.
The freshman senator, a tea party favorite thought to be weighing a 2016 presidential bid, is scheduled to headline an Aug. 23 fundraiser for the New Hampshire GOP.
The trip represents Cruz's first visit to New Hampshire, which is expected to host the nation's first presidential primary. He has already visited South Carolina and has summer stops planned for Iowa and Florida.
The 42-year-old senator began serving his first Senate term in January.
