It’s official: Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is running for President in 2016. He made the announcement on his Twitter account:
I'm running for President and I hope to earn your support! pic.twitter.com/0UTqaIoytP— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) March 23, 2015
The tweet included a short 30 second video with Cruz narrating, saying that it was “a time for truth, a time to rise to the challenge, just as Americans have always done.”
“I believe in America and her people, and I believe we can stand up and restore her promise,” Cruz continues. “It’s going to take a new generation of courageous conservatives to help make America great again, and I’m ready to stand with you to lead the fight.”
As Breitbart Texas reported, Cruz teased the news with a tweet posted just after 7:00 p.m. Central Time, writing that around midnight — presumably Eastern Time — “there will be some news you won’t want to miss.” The Senator also made a similar comment in his appearance on the Breitbart News Sunday program on SiriusXM Patriot.
This makes Cruz the first Republican candidate to throw his hat in the ring. As Breitbart Texas reported, Cruz opted to go ahead and officially launch a presidential campaign, rather than continue to promote his activities through his leadership PAC or through an exploratory committee. Senior advisers close to Cruz had told the Houston Chronicle that the Senator was done “exploring” and wanted to get the campaign officially started.
Ray House, this one's for you!
Last weekend attorney KrissAnn Hall spoke at Rowan County Oathkeepers, Faith, NC, March 29, 2015.

Go Ted Go!!!
Translation: "Burn, Rome, Burn!" (Nero)
My translation; Go Ted Go!!(Hause)
Has Ted denied and renounced his Cuban citizenship in addition to Canadian citizenship?
And is "sending a letter" to refute citizenship now legally accepted by the US and Canadian governments?
He never had Cuban citizenship, isn't necessary.
Now you are ADDING Another country to the attack list ? He has never had anything to do with Cuba, much less have citizenship there. What nightmare did you wake up from ? LOL He most likely never even knew he was a Canadian citizen until someone told him. He's never had any attachments to Canada. His ONLY loyalty has been to America.
to Scott and others:
Who cares whether or not a presidential candidate is legally qualified to run for office. Obama and the Democrats should have thought about that before they threw Obama out there. Any one with a smidgen of a brain knows he (Obama) is not a "Natural Born: Citizen. nor an American at heart. Since the door has been open anything goes now! As for all those republicans they are aware of his illegal highness as well and do nothing. Those making a career out of our government have been wanting this for a long time. Who knows maybe next time we will get an Iranian!
As for Ted Cruz at least he loves America and that should mean ever so much right now with America being down graded.
Mary Watson, maybe a person demonstrating his or her love of The United States of America is a true and honest 'Natural Born Again American Citizen'? How about a person born a citizen and throughout his or her life expresses his or her loyalty to the United States of America, becomes a Natural Born Citizen? The purpose as I see it is to demonstrate loyalty and maybe NBC is only one way.
You made the statement, "Since the door has been open anything goes now!".
I find that very disappointing! Just because one person robs a bank, and gets away with it, doesn't mean it is now O.K. for others to do the same thing! It's what your mother used to tell you (at least I hope she did!) - "Two wrongs, don't make a right."
While I like Ted Cruz, and believe he is truly a patriotic American, I find it bothersome that he has, apparently, accepted this rather shallow, and less than thorough, evaluation of this (to me) very important Constitutional question.
How can you people be so gullible? Cruz in NOT ELIGIBLE to be POTUS. He is not a Natural born citizen, either is Rubio. Wake up people.
