Cruz to Officially Launch Re-Election Bid

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is officially running for re-election.

On Monday, Cruz, the Republican incumbent in the race for Texas' U.S. Senate seat, announced that he would be officially kicking off his bid for re-election in Stafford, Texas on April 2nd. The event at the Redneck Country Club in Stafford will feature Cruz, as well as music from the Josh Fuller Band.

Cruz's announcement comes just weeks after he won the Republican Party's nomination for the U.S. Senate seat he currently holds. Cruz won 85 percent of the vote in the Republican primary, fighting off a challenge from four candidates. Cruz's top opponents, accountant Mary Miller and religious television producer Bruce Jacobson, Jr., won 6 percent and 4 percent, respectively.

Senator Cruz is facing Democratic Congressman Beto O'Rourke in the November general election. Libertarian and Green Party nominees are also expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
