Senator Ted Cruz announced early on Monday, March 23, that he would join the 2016 presidential race. The Republican senator launched his election campaign with a tweet and video statement released shortly after midnight (East Coast). Cruz is the first major figure from the Republican or Democratic party to announce their decision to run for president in 2016. Social media reaction was rife, and while some comments were welcoming of Cruz’s announcement, many others were quick to make fun of the Texan senator and the unusual timing of the campaign announcement.
