In preparation for tonight’s caucuses, Ted Cruz has spent nearly three-quarters of the past month campaigning in Iowa. That means his darling wife, Heidi Cruz, has also had to spend a lot of time in Iowa. And according to a source familiar with the Cruz family, Iowa is Heidi Cruz’s own living hell.

Heidi, who is well-versed in suppressing her disgust for the cameras, is a Goldman Sachs investment manager from a small California college town—a far cry from the cornfields and Pizza Ranches of Iowa. And apparently, it shows.

“Heidi has repeatedly been complaining about how disgusting the voters and whole scene in Iowa is,” our source told Gawker. “She says everyone smokes cigarettes, eats horribly, and wants to hug and touch her all the time. She said that she has to go back to the hotel and take a shower multiple times a day due to this environment.”

According to Heidi’s Twitter, meanwhile, meeting all those Iowans has been “so wonderful.”

That is, indeed, a face that screams, “so wonderful.”

We’ve reached out to the Cruz campaign for comment, and will update if and when we hear back. Until we do, it’s impossible to know for sure what’s in Heidi’s heart. If only she could give us some sort of sign...

“So wonderful to meet so many Iowans today!”
