Republican Senator and presidential hopeful Ted Cruz is opening an office in Racine, the first candidate to do so in this election cycle.

The Journal Times is reporting that Cruz’s campaign will set up shop at 3207 Washington Avenue in West Racine, and it should be open today.

Neither Donald Trump, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Hillary Clinton or Sen. Bernie Sanders have opened offices in Racine County, but ads have started on television and are expected to be in heavy rotation in the days leading up to the April 5 primary.

Eyes are turning toward Wisconsin; not only does the Dairy State have 10 valuable delegates to award the winners, but the state is also widely considered a battleground. Voters here have leaned Democratic since the 1976 election, only voting Republican in the 1980 and the 1984 elections, according to the 270towin.com website.
