While Marshall County Treasurer doesn't sound like the title of a "big get" when it comes to presidential campaign endorsements, in Iowa, not everything is as it seems.

Jarret Heil, who was first elected to that position in 2010, also happens to be president of the Iowa State County Treasurers Association and chairman of the Iowa Republican County Officials Association. As of Tuesday afternoon, he is on the Cruz Crew.

"I'm a strong supporter of Ted Cruz and am honored to be a member of his Iowa Leadership team," Heil said. "Americans are thirsting for leadership to strip power from the political ruling class in Washington, and bring the government back to 'we the people.' Cruz fits that mold and is that leader. In the U.S. Senate, he has taken that fight to the reckless policies of the current administration and has challenged his own party leadership when necessary. As a true conservative, Cruz's vision for America is rooted in his deep constitutional understanding and values founded on his faith. I am excited to join this vast grass-roots team that will help make Ted Cruz our next president of the United States."

Highlighting the strength and diversity of his Iowa Leadership Team, Cruz said "Jarret is a great example of the dynamic young leaders who are rising up all over this country—men and women who are not satisfied to take a seat among their elders and sustain the status quo. I'm thrilled to have his support. He is a great addition to our Iowa Leadership Team."
