U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, was the first of several Republican candidates to announce a 2016 presidential run.

Cruz took to Twitter to announce his candidacy on March 23, 2015

Cruz was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2012. Prior to that he served as the Solicitor General for the state of Texas and practiced law.

According to his campaign website, Cruz fought "to repeal Obamacare, to stop President Obama's illegal and unconstitutional executive amnesty, and to defend life, marriage, the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, and our entire Bill of Rights” during his short stint in the U.S. Senate.

Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother and Cuban father. In 2014 Cruz renounced his Canadian dual citizenship.
