Cruz (R-Tex.) came here Saturday on a mission to court female Republican activists. His timing may be opportune: As front-runner Donald Trump has come under fire for a string of comments many see as anti-women, Cruz is trying to seize the moment to retain and expand his foothold in the GOP electorate. He also is trying to disprove the axiom that a candidate with a largely evangelical and socially conservative base can’t win over women voters.
