Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) isn’t an after-thought anymore. With one rousing speech in Iowa he’s upset the GOP apple cart and turned himself into the rising star everyone is watching.
From National Review Online:
The early dynamics of the 2016 Republican presidential-primary contest were jolted on the morning of Friday, July 19, in a ballroom on the third floor of the Marriott hotel in downtown Des Moines. It was there, in front of coffee-sipping pastors, that Senator Ted Cruz of Texas wowed the kingmakers of the Iowa caucuses for the first time. Without notes and ignoring the podium, he roamed the carpeted dais for nearly an hour, quoting Scripture and musing about the Democrats and their occasional affinity for Satan. The reception was rapturous. Many ministers eagerly asked Cruz’s advisers where they could sign up for a campaign that doesn’t exist, while others encircled Cruz and laid their hands on him to pray.
It’s not just Iowa evangelicals either, even D.C. insiders are taking Cruz and his grassroots brand of conservatism seriously. You should too.
