From the Canadian Press:
WASHINGTON - Ted Cruz, the Calgary-born conservative darling, has made a big splash in just five months as a U.S. senator — and now he's apparently eyeing a run for president with the support of the very Tea Party crowd that has bitterly alleged U.S. President Barack Obama wasn't born in the United States.
The conservative National Review reported Wednesday that the Texas lawmaker is considering a presidential bid in 2016.
Cruz was born in Calgary in 1970 to an American mother and a Cuban father — an immigrant to the U.S. during the Cuban revolution — while the couple worked in the oil business. The Cruz family returned to the U.S. when he was four years old; the senator grew up in Texas.
