Conservative warrior Ted Cruz to announce presidential bid

March 22, 2015

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) will announce on Monday, March 23 at Liberty University, a conservative university in Virginia, that he will be running for president of the United States. The report was first announced by Cruz’s senior political advisor Jason Johnson. Cruz, a conservative firebrand who was caused tension with establishment Republicans, will be the first 2016 candidate to officially announce. Cruz, was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2012, defeating Democrat Paul Sadler, and then defeating then Texas Lt.-Gov. David Dewhurst in a tough primary battle. Cruz is lambasted by liberal Democrats as the cause of the October 2013 government shutdown and tough attacks on Obamacare funding. Cruz, 44, served as Texas Solicitor General from 2003 to 2008 and graduated from Harvard University and Princeton University.
