Conservative group moves Ted Cruz event off UW-Madison campus, citing issue with mask policy

Anational group that brings conservative speakers to colleges moved an event with Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, of Texas, which had been scheduled to take place on the UW-Madison campus Wednesday evening, off campus because it disagreed with the university’s indoor mask mandate. UW-Madison officials, however, shared emails that show the group had agreed to follow the university’s COVID-19 health protocols as a condition to rent space in Memorial Union.
