Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will be in the Twin Cities tonight to deliver a speech to a sold-out audience.

The Associated Press reports that Clinton is scheduled to speak Sunday evening at Beth El Synagogue in St. Louis Park as part of its national speaker series.

Clinton has been giving speeches around the country, leading to speculation that she is building toward a campaign for president. She ran in 2008.

Meanwhile, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, often mentioned as a Republican presidential candidate in 2016, spent the weekend pheasant-hunting in western Iowa.

The Des Moines Register reports the high profile Texas senator hunted on Saturday with Iowa Congressman Steve King before heading to the Le Mars Convention Center, where Cruz spoke to a sold-out fundraising luncheon for King. Cruz received a standing ovation after his remarks to about 275 people.
