TED FOR PRESIDENT
TED FOR PRESIDENT
Gage Skidmore
Ted Cruz, Republican U.S. Senator from Texas, was first elected to political office in 2012. His Senate campaign was his first and only public office campaign so far. As Solicitor General in Texas he authored more than 80 U.S. Supreme Court briefs and nine oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court. As Senator he is known for a speech on the floor of the Senate regarding the Affordable Care Act. Cruz promised to keep speaking until he was "no longer able to stand". He yielded the floor at noon the following day after twenty-one hours nineteen minutes. His speech was the fourth-longest in United States Senate history. He is revered by many in the tea party for his conservative views while his opponents see him as too-far-right. He and his wife, Heidi, have two young daughters.
