Ted Cruz has announced he's running for president on Twitter.
Early Monday morning, the Republican Texas Senator revealed his bid on the social media platform.
I am running for President of the United States to stand with each of you to reignite the promise of America #MakeDCListen— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) March 23, 2015
Cruz, 44, made headlines in 2013 when he read a passage from Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham while on the Senate floor. The Senator is expected to make a more traditional announcement on Monday night at Liberty University in Virginia. He's the first person to officially announce their candidacy for the 2016 election.
