Exclusive: Super PACs backing Republican Cruz buy $2.4 million in ads in eight states

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Cruz addresses campaign rally in HoustonBy Ginger Gibson WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Making a final push toward the crucial Super Tuesday vote, Super PACs backing Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz bought $ 2.4 million in advertising supporting him in eight states, the groups told Reuters. The ads purchased by Keep The Promise and its various offshoots include radio, television and online and are the latest effort by supporters of Cruz, a U.S. senator of Texas, to dislodge Donald Trump from the front-runner position in Tuesday's critical 11-state Republican nominating contests. Should Trump sweep the contests, it could make stopping his path to the Republican nomination impossible.
