Skip to comments.Ted Cruz to announce presidential bid Monday
Posted on 03/21/2015 9:46:44 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Sen. Ted Cruz plans to announce Monday that he will run for president of the United States, accelerating his already rapid three-year rise from a tea party insurgent in Texas into a divisive political force in Washington.
Cruz will launch a presidential bid outright rather than form an exploratory committee, said senior advisers with direct knowledge of his plans, who spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement had not been made yet. They say he is done exploring and is now ready to become the first Republican presidential candidate.

We can thank Sarah Palin for this. Ted Cruz thanked her for her support, otherwise he would not be Senator today.
Cruz, like Palin, have that Reagan like quality of unbridled love for America.
YES! CRUZ / PALIN 2016
you know, I have a great deal of respect for Sarah, and would vote for her without hesitation, but I’ve come to the realization she will never, ever run...period.
I would love to be wrong, but I don’t think I am.
for the win!
Reagan wasn’t a first time senator and had already just missed the nomination in 1976.
He was ready...and so was the country.
Cruz is too young and inexperienced. He can wait 4-8 years.
YES YES!! Make Tom Cotton his running mate as well!
America doesn’t have 4-8 years.
I’m done with the usual suspects.
If he invited to the debates.
Any way we can convince the PTB to NOT have debates led by leftists that only serve to make all of our picks look like idiots?
Ted Cruz is the guy I disagree with the least. He’s actually kinda awesome.
How do we get him the Winner at the finish line?
I'm glad he's in it. He certainly has a lot of supporters here on FR. I don't think he will win but he will learn a lot. Like you said, he is young, and has plenty of years ahead to make another run if this one doesn't work out. He may even be picked for VP if he gets primary'd.
Let the games begin!
The only thing though is I hope he doesn’t run as a Republican because they are going to do everything they can to destroy him so they can insert their token RINO. Remember what they did to Herman Cain, all the women they dragged out from under the rocks, none of which ever presented one shred of proof. These pieces of rat slime will make up anything to destroy him and Cruz can deny it all he wants, but the RINO party in conjunction with the Treason party and the media will promote is as true, constantly until he drops out. That’s why he has to run as an independent. Both these parties, the Treason party and the RINO party are parties run by enemies of this country and Cruz would be wise to not join them but confront these corrupt pieces of rat filth head on, expose THEM for once as THEY are the cause of all our problems.
You don’t send a Superstar to the minor leagues. You bring him up to the majors and get out of the way while he makes history.
Ted Cruz is destined to be President and nothing can stop that from happening.
Oh wait a minute! He can’t run, Obama is going to proclaim himself Emperor for life. I forgot about that. Yes of course, he is going to give himself absolute power and proclaim himself Emperor. I mean why not? It’s not like Congress will do anything about it.
And your choice for prez is . . . ?
BTW, did you know that George Washington had zero experience prior to becoming president?
Being a statesman is about character, not experience. Experience turns one into a politician, and one with very great left-wing tendencies. Sometimes “experience” must be unlearned.
"Now, I want you all to watch that press. Yes, mark my words, watch what the liberal mainstream media, the same media who has been carrying water for Obama for six years, will do and say about me now. There will be mud slung, there will be jokes told, there will be mocking piled on top of mocking as if mocking itself might cure cancer.
"These Saul Alinsky tactics have worked very well for them in the past, because readers and viewers have believed the mocking and the mudslinging without the slightest question. But we aren't going to do that this time, are we? We are ready. We are waiting. We know the ridicule is coming, and we aren't going to just fall for it; we're going to ask for it. Come on. Liberal media. Give me your best shot! Because we have more important business to do than to waste time getting mired down in ad hominem sludge." Etc.
When I hear Linda I think of Lindsay Graham, a guy with a woman’s name.
I stand with Cruz
Also, mini Juan....
