According to his spokesman, Cruz's absence is "not a snub," but just a scheduling issue in a bustling presidential cycle. Cruz will forgo the State of the Union to campaign in New Hampshire, where polls show him fighting hard for second place.

According to the Hill story, Cruz has not campaigned in the Granite State since November.
