Wednesday evening, in an email to his closest supporters, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) made a major announcement—although it probably wasn't the announcement they had hoped to hear:
When I suspended my presidential campaign, I vowed to never stop fighting for our shared conservative values. Today, I have an important announcement, and I want you to be the first to know. You see: the Washington Cartel has done everything in their power to defeat me—but I'm not giving in. ...
While my campaign for president didn't end the way you and I had hoped—after serious prayer and careful consideration, Heidi and I have decided we are going to keep fighting, and I hope you will too. So, this afternoon I've filed my official paperwork to run for re-election to the United States Senate in Texas.
As conservatives, you and I are facing a monumental battle in 2016 and beyond. That is why I'm emailing you today.
In the Senate, I will continue fighting for jobs, freedom and security for 27 million Texans and all Americans across this great country. When conservatives are united, we are far more effective—the conservative movement remains strong and vibrant.
Cruz will not face re-election until 2018, but he urged his supporters to begin rallying to his cause now, before "the Washington, D.C., insiders start attacking" him again. He said it is imperative that the U.S. Senate remain in Republican control.
"Thank you for all that you've done," he said. "Your support means the world to Heidi and me."
