Sen. Ted Cruz has released his birth certificate, visited the states that traditionally open the Republican presidential race and cemented himself as one of the few no-holds-barred foes of Obamacare.
Taken together, the moves signal that the 42-year-old Texan â€” elected to the Senate less than a year ago â€” is seriously considering a run for the White House.
â€œI think Cruz is in and he is serious and he is going to be a tough out,â€ said Mike McKenna, a Republican strategist. â€œHe is going to be the disruptive force in 2016. Cruz is the 2016 wild card now.â€
On Monday, Mr. Cruz looked to put to bed any questions about whether he is eligible to run for president by releasing to The Dallas Morning News his birth certificate, showing he was born in 1970 in Canada to an American mother, giving him both Canadian and U.S. citizenship. By Monday evening, The Washington Post was reporting that Mr. Cruz plans to renounce his Canadian citizenship â€” clearing the way, apparently, for a White House bid.
The decision to release the document put him in a similar boat as President Obama, who in 2011 released his birth certificate showing he was born in Hawaii in 1961 after â€œbirthersâ€ claimed he was born outside of the U.S. and therefore has been illegally calling the shots from the Oval Office.
