President Obama spent Labor Day in Wisconsin, opening the campaign season in a battleground state with a tight race for governor — but the Democrat at the top of the ticket there was nowhere to be seen.
Mary Burke, who is battling to unseat Republican Gov. Scott Walker, decided to steer clear of Obama’s visit to LaborFest, an annual salute to organized labor held in Milwaukee.
She became the latest in a parade of Democrats in tight races who have tried to create space between themselves and a President with weak poll numbers.
“We are 66 days out from the November elections,” Cruz said, adding:
Sixty-six days from now, just over 1,500 hours, we’re going to retake the United States Senate, and we’re going to retire Harry Reid.
So I’m here to say "thank you," but this summit is also a call to action.
Every man, woman and child who is here, we got 66 days and we got a job to do.
I’m going to tell you four key issues that are going to be front and center come election day.
Number one, no amnesty.

If you oppose amnesty, throw Harry Reid out.

Cruz noted that the second-most important issue of the year is Obamacare.
He went on to detail how adopting smarter foreign policy and defending Americans’ constitutional rights are a close third and fourth.
