OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz stopped at a suburban Kansas City restaurant for some barbecue before heading to a rally at Johnson County Community College.

The Texas senator ordered a smoked brisket sandwich at Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que in Olathe, Kansas, on Wednesday and sampled some of the restaurant’s ribs and burnt ends.

Cruz shook hands with supporters and said he was looking forward to trying Kansas City-area barbecue because his home state of Texas takes its barbecue seriously. He told a television reporter the best way to eat ribs is with your fingers, because “if you’re eating barbecue and you’re not getting it all over, you’re not doing it right.”

Cathy Schmidt, a 62-year-old Olathe real estate agent, reassured Cruz that he still can win his party’s nomination.
