At rallies on Saturday and Sunday, Cruz thanked his wife, Heidi, for introducing him and then delivered this message to "all the school aged kids" in the crowd:

"When Heidi's first lady, french fries are coming back to the cafeteria!" he said to cheers.

"The last I checked the cardboard was supposed to be on the tray and not in the food!"
