Cruz is the first to officially announce his candidacy. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have launched exploratory committees first. He will formally announce today during a speech this morning at Liberty University in Lynchberg, VA. His campaign website was launched that you can see here.
