DUBLIN, N.H. — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, a Texas Republican seen as a possible contender for president in 2016, visits New Hampshire tonight.

Cruz is scheduled to attend a New Hampshire Republican State Committee fundraiser in Dublin. The $100-a-ticket event at Knollwood Farm kicks off at 5:30 p.m.

The freshman senator has made national headlines suggesting that Republicans in Congress shut down the federal government to stop implementation of President Barack Obama's signature health care overhaul, the Affordable Care Act.
