Texas Senator Ted Cruz says his #1 priority if he wins the White House will be jobs and the economy. During an interview with Acadiana's Morning News on KPEL he talked about "getting Washington out of the way" to create more jobs in the struggling oil and gas industry. The interview comes the day after another contentious GOP debate on Fox News Channel. Earlier this week, he finished a strong second on Super Tuesday behind leading GOP hopeful, Donald Trump.

Cruz has appearances planned in Louisiana today- ahead of tomorrow's primary in the state. If you wish to attend, today's event will be at the Castine Center in Mandeville. Joining him on stage will be 'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson. The event is from 7:30pm-9:30pm, with doors opening at 7:00pm
