A new independent Super PAC has been formed with the intention of playing a supporting role in a presidential run for Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.

Its chairman and director, Maria Strollo Zack, who worked for former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee in 2008 and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich in 2012, strongly hinted to the The Daily Mail that Cruz could make a run for the White House. “We’d like to be $50 million by the end of March 2016, going into Super Tuesday,” she said.
“The reason we’re starting it, is that America craves, thirsts, and hungers for strong, bold, principled conservative leadership.”
A RealClearPolitics average has Cruz in eighth place in a group of 2016 Republican presidential hopefuls, including Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, former Governor Jeb Bush of Florida, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, and Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.
This is how some people feel about Ted Cruz running, despite the fact the “Draft Ted Cruz For President Super PAC” has only collected 17,889 signatures as of Friday evening (according to its website):
@marklevinshow I don’t agree that the next president needs to be a governor As far as senators go the only one I would vote for is Ted Cruz

If Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, or Dr Ben run for President, I’ll re-register GOP 2 vote in primaries. If no Conservatives run, I’m out. Pointless.
