ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz made a campaign stop in Green Bay, Wisconsin on Sunday promising young voters to drive down their student loan debt and to boost the economy, just a few days ahead of the nominating contest in Wisconsin, set for Tuesday. He went on to slam his Republican rival Donald Trump for suggesting it would be possible to broker deals with Democrats. "He said, 'Ted, when it comes to the Supreme Court, when it comes to religious liberty, you've got to learn to cut deals with the Democrats and go along to get along.'" Cruz said. "Well, let me be very very clear to the men and women of Wisconsin -- I will not compromise away your religious liberty," he added. Tuesday could be a turning point in the Republican nomination race, when Wisconsin hosts its nominating contest. Trump trails leading rival Cruz in the Upper Midwestern state. A Cruz win would make it harder for Trump to reach the magic number of 1,237 delegates needed to secure the nomination before the Republican national convention in July. The winner will get to claim all of Wisconsin's 42 delegates.
