SAN DIEGO -- Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is scheduled to hold a rally in Mission Valley on behalf of his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination Monday night, 57 days before the June 7 California primary.

The rally at the Town & Country Resort is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. RSVPs to be added to the waiting list are being accepted on the Eventbrite website.

The 45-year-old Cruz is also scheduled to hold a rally earlier today in Irvine.

Both of Cruz's opponents for the Republican nomination are scheduled to campaign in New York today in advance of its April 19 primary. Businessman Donald J. Trump is scheduled to hold a nighttime rally in Albany and Ohio Gov. John Kasich plans to hold town hall meetings in Troy and Saratoga Springs.

After winning all 13 delegates at stake Saturday at the Colorado Republican Party State Convention, Cruz issued a statement declaring, "This election is about the hope that our children can still have a more promising landscape of opportunity than generations past.

"It's about bringing together Americans from all backgrounds who know that we will be stronger, more prosperous, and infinitely more free if we return power in Washington back to the people.

"So that Americans are free to create better jobs, live and worship freely, and once again proudly defend `the last best hope of Earth.”
