LYNCHBURG, Va. (MEDIA GENERAL) – Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) spoke to a sea of cultural conservatives at Liberty University in Virginia Monday as he launched the first official campaign of the 2016 presidential season. He talked about “reigniting the promise of America.”
In his speech, Sen. Cruz touched on a number of campaign cries sure to be heard throughout his push for the presidency. Previous messages of Twitter have echoed those same messages.
Sen. Cruz very clearly wants to repeal all of Obamacare. He said during his speech at Liberty University on Monday that as president he would repeal the controversial healthcare law.

Gun Control Sen. Cruz spoke about protecting American’s right to bear arms during his speech on Monday.

In December, Sen. Cruz defied party leaders to force a vote on opposing Obama’s executive actions on immigration. The strategy failed and rankled some in his own party.

Education Sen. Cruz said during his presidential run announcement on Monday he wants to repeal every word of Common Core and embrace school choice as the civil rights issue of the next generation.

Iran Nuclear Talks
Sen. Cruz has said the Obama Administration’s deal with Iran must be stopped. He and Rep. Trent Franks (R-Arizona) have proposed an alternative to what Sen. Cruz calls the “disastrous proposed nuclear deal with Iran.” What they’ve dubbed “The Sanction Iran, Safeguard America Act” would re-impose and expand sanctions in Iran, stop funding for negotiations and implementation of any nuclear agreement with Iran unless congress approves, gives Iran a path to dismantling the nuclear program, and requires Iran to renounce its state-sponsorship of terrorism.

Sci-Fi Fan Politics isn’t everything. Sen. Cruz posted this message to his Senate Twitter account remembering Leonard Nimoy after the Star Trek veteran passed away. Sen. Cruz has also written “America has always led the way in space exploration and we need to reclaim that leadership.”

While Cruz is the first Republican to declare his candidacy, he is all but certain to be followed by several big names in the GOP, including former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and two Senate colleagues, Kentucky’s Rand Paul and Florida’s Marco Rubio.
