When Cruz Makes His Move, Watch Out

The Texas senator may look like an also-ran, but he’s a legit contender. 

Where’s Ted Cruz? The outspoken Texas senator has been unusually quiet in recent weeks. But in GOP circles, there’s soft but growing chatter that he is likely to be one of the last men standing in one of the most chaotic and unpredictable presidential races in recent memory. 

You wouldn’t know it from his poll numbers. Cruz is running at about 6 percent nationally and in key states such as Iowa and New Hampshire. That’s well behind outsiders Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina, and Ben Carson, and those numbers accord with the attitude that many influential Republicans have taken toward him since his arrival in Washington three years ago: There’s no way he can win the nomination. He’s too conservative and doctrinaire, and his abrasiveness doesn’t help the cause.

He has my vote.

He has my vote, as well. I'm not going to bad-mouth any of the other candidates, but I would strongly encourage any conservative voters out there to take a good long look at Ted Cruz. Unlike Obama, he truly is 'the smartest guy in the room'. The press is frantic to ignore Cruz because liberal democrats are scared to death of him - and that should tell you something right there.
