The midterm election results have Washington hopefuls abuzz. For the first time since George Bush passed the torch, Republicans are feeling enthusiastic that the executive office could be returned to a conservative candidate. Everyone is speculating about who is going to throw their hat in the race for 2016. The usual candidates, and those who cause the most controversy have already been marked. Jeb Bush is the latest Republican to be a source of wonder, but there are many who will be vying for the highest office in the land. Who are they will they be capable of restoring America’s promise?
Although not someone who is working quietly behind the scenes, Ted Cruz deserves mention. Trying to break out in front of the pack as the candidate who will take a stand, he has been making waves in Washington and exerting his best efforts to halt Obama’s agenda. Whether it is all for show, or he has the hutzpah to hold his ground, remains to be seen, but he is someone to watch for the 2016 race. At a time when we need someone to push back, could he be the magic bullet we need in our line of defense?
