Ted Cruz was asked if he would run for president in 2024 if the opportunity presented itself.
“In a heartbeat,” he replied.
“I ran in 2016. It was the most fun I’ve ever had in my life. We had a very crowded field, 17 candidates in the race, a very strong field. And I ended up placing second.”

Assuming he does run again, Ted thinks his chances are pretty decent.
“There’s a reason historically that the runner-up is almost always the next nominee. That’s been true going back to Nixon or Reagan or McCain or Romney. That’s played out repeatedly. You come in with just an enormous base of support.”
