Sen. Ted Cruz Set for 'Tonight Show' Appearance
The congressman will be making what is billed as his debut on late-night television on Nov. 8.
Sen. Ted Cruz will be chatting with Jay Leno next week.
The congressman, who gained prominence amid the weeks-long government shutdown in October, is set to appear on The Tonight Show on Nov. 8, NBC announced Wednesday.
The Texas Republican was a guest on CNN's Crossfire and on Fox News during the shutdown, but is making his debut on late night with the Leno appearance, the network said.
Cruz, an ardent opponent of the Obama administration's healthcare reform legislation, is expected to address the "current state of the Republican Party" among other topics.
In August, The Tonight Show hosted President Obama. Earlier this month, Ann Romney, wife of former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, appeared on the late-night show to talk about her cook book.
