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.

What we really need is someone who actually believes what he says and doesn't just say stuff because people wanna hear it.
The RNC is the party with the best ideas and all we need is a good leader.
We got a lot of good stuff done in the 1980s.
Ted Cruz is the only candidate who can actually fill Ronald Reagan's shoes.
Good. Get in it and win it.
Get the donations flowin’ we got a country to save and Ted is the man!!!! Accept no substitutes!!!! Conservatives unite behind a true leader!
Thank you God, now please...... help us help him win.
The RNC needs to get rid of that passive pile of crap Rinse Repeatus, or Price Reibus as I like to call him. That dope is worse than get jiggy wit it Michael “I’ve never met a RINO I do not like” Steele
I sent some money to Fred Thompson at some point in time. It was only $100, but I sincerely regret it.
Hopefully Ted Cruz is no Fred Thompson.
Cruz is at the top of my list. Run!
Mr. Cruz is the only one I can get excited about, would consider sending money too....
Now, if he will just get his wife to quit her job at Goldman Sachs..
“Id rather he be a king maker.”
What do you think Sarah is? She made Cruz. Cruz will undo Obamaoist policies.
Aw, Hells yeah, son!
Cruz/Jindal, Cruz/Walker, Cruz/Haley, etc.
Where exactly does the comparison lie?
If you have to ask the question, you have no idea what you are asking.
An answer like that implies you don’t know.
I see no parallel between Cruz and Thompson when it comes to the issues.
I’ve got my checkbook ready, Senator. I’m behind you all the way.
Writing my check for $1000 now with more to come.
Cruz is this generation’s Reagan, whom this country desperately needs to reverse course from the dangerous course set by the modern-day (but far worse) Carter. In view of the size of the potential Republican field, if we conservatives un=eite behind him solidly and quickly, he has a real chance to win.
