Senator Ted Cruz of Texas this week announced that he’s running for the Republican nomination for President of the United States. Will he be the nominee? I don’t know.
Here is a somewhat comprehensive list of the most likely Republicans to throw their hats into the ring: Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Rick Perry, John Kasich, Lindsey Graham, Bobby Jindal, Rick Santorum, Carly Fiorina, and Mike Pence. There may still be others, but these are the ones most often mentioned, and who have expressed a reasonable degree of interest in running.
