Will Ted Cruz run for president in 2016? Sources are telling National Review’s Robert Costa that it just might happen.

The freshman senator from Texas is considering a run for president, thanks to an overwhelming amount of grassroots support from conservatives.

“We all see a path, and he does, too,” a former Cruz colleague tells Costa. “This isn’t someone who needs to be told the obvious. He didn’t run for the Senate to get cozy, so no one who knows him is surprised that he’s at least looking at it.”
