JEFFERSON, Iowa — It came down to the final hours, but Ted Cruz has done it, visiting all 99 of Iowa’s counties ahead of the state’s first-in-the-nation caucus.

Cruz’s swing, known here as the “full Grassley” after Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, wrapped up in a school gym with a stump speech and a question-and-answer session.

The effort to hit each county is important, Cruz said, because it allows candidates to “show the respect I think anyone who wants to compete in this state owes to the men and women of Iowa, to look you in the eyes, answer your hard questions.”
