Already a favorite among Iowa voters, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is setting his sights on New Hampshire with a 17-stop bus tour of the Granite State.

NPR’s Sarah McCammon, who interviewed Cruz on the campaign trail, says the candidate is “trying to set himself up as the alternative for the people who are interested in [Donald] Trump.”

McCammon speaks with Here & Now’s Lisa Mullins from North Conway, New Hampshire, where she is travelling with the Cruz campaign.
