ANKENY, Iowa - Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) has been dogged on the campaign trail here in Iowa by a curious protester: a young man holding a sign that states, "Ted Cruz likes Nickelback."
The young man would not give his name or his affiliation, despite boasting that photos of him have whipped around the Internet, and that one appeared on the front page of The Wall Street Journal. "They're both Canadian," the man said.
He also handed out copies of Cruz's birth certificate. "I just don’t want, really, a Canadian in office. It seems like he’s got a lot of controversy behind him whether he’s a U.S.-born citizen or not and I’m just out here making a statement."
Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Nickelback is also from Alberta. The band weighed in on the sign earlier this month.
When asked to name his favorite Nickelback song, the man said: "I don't like Nickelback."
