Ted Cruz is Running For President

Senator Ted Cruz was expected to formally announce his candidacy for President of the United States Monday, but instead decided to do the honors late Sunday night on Twitter. In a tweet, the senator announced that he was running for president and asked for the support of his followers in that pursuit. The tweet also included a small proportion video suggesting that people should rise to the challenge and encouraging a new generation of “courageous conservatives” to help make America great again.

Cruz has a long fight ahead of him in his quest for the presidency. He’ll first have to beat out a number of republican hopefuls in the primary and then if he wins face off agains the democratic hopeful which at this point looks like it will more than likely be former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The race to the 2016 White House is officially underway which can be seen on Vimeo. It will be interesting to see how the race pans out on both sides of the aisle. Cruz is just the first of many announcements we’re likely to see over the coming days and weeks.
