(TheRedWire.com) – Senator Ted Cruz of Texas has openly expressed his intentions to consider another presidential run at an opportune time. Reflecting on the spirited campaign he led in 2016, Cruz described the experience as the pinnacle of his professional life, filled with excitement and remarkably close to a win. In a candid interview with The Texas Tribune, he shared these reflections amidst conversations about his newly released book, “Unwoke: How to Defeat Cultural Marxism in America.”
In the interview, Cruz didn’t shy away from acknowledging his deep-seated aspirations for the Oval Office, recounting the campaign trail as a remarkable journey and expressing an earnest desire to throw his hat in the ring once more. His decision not to run in the current cycle, as he revealed, was a strategic choice influenced by what he perceives as a more pressing need to direct his energies toward legislative battles in the Senate, particularly at a time when he considers the political landscape to be fraught with critical challenges.
Senator Cruz has positioned the Senate as a pivotal battleground, especially significant for confronting what he views as the current administration’s missteps. He’s vocal about his stance on immigration, a hot-button issue he took to the forefront during an appearance on Newsmax. There, he leveled serious allegations against President Joe Biden and his party, arguing that their policies are effectively ‘siding with cartels’ by keeping the southern border permeable to illegal immigration.
Cruz stands behind his home state of Texas’s efforts to reinforce border security. He paints a picture of the state as holding the line in a struggle against federal policies that, in his view, not only fail to stem the flow of illegal migration but seem to encourage it tacitly. For Cruz, the current state of affairs represents a crisis provoked and perpetuated by the Biden administration’s choices. He frames his critique as a call to action against a blatant disregard for controlled and legal immigration processes.
