Yesterday afternoon, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) announced that he will mount a bid for president of the United States.  The announcement makes Cruz the first Republican to declare candidacy for 2016.

Cruz is a favorite Tea Party members because he has routinely challenged the GOP establishment.  He is also a favorite of pro-life advocates and other social conservatives who want political leaders who are willing to uphold the true definition of marriage.

His speech announcing his presidential bid was held at Liberty University in Virginia.  Cruz did not shy away from his faith or the politically incorrect topics of abortion, marriage redefinition, fighting radical Islam and supporting Israel.
