Last night on Twitter at midnight, Texas Senator Ted Cruz announced that he will be running for President.
Here's the video that was in Ted Cruz's tweet.
Here's the longer version of his announcement video that was posted later.

Since 1992 every Presidential election except 2012 had either a Bush or a Clinton trying to run for President. If you want to go back even further in 1988, George H.W Bush ran for President and won. In 1980 and 1984, George H.W. Bush ran for Vice President under Ronald Reagan. George H.W. Bush also ran for the Republican Presidential nomination in 1980. If you want to think of it like this, we have had a Bush on a Presidential ticket in every election since 1980 except 1996, 2008, and 2012. Only once in American history has a Bush and Clinton faced off in a Presidential race. That was in 1992 which Bill Clinton beat George H.W. Bush in his run for reelection. Its very well possible that we might see another Bush vs. Clinton face off in 2016.
After that icy 1992 campaign, members of the Bush family helped campaign against Clinton in 1996, and Clinton returned fire when George W. Bush ran for president in 2000. George W. Bush, by the way, ran in part to "restore honor and dignity" to the office of the Presidency. The implication there is that Clinton tarnished it.
Saturday Night Live went after the scandal behind Hillary Clinton's emails while portraying her as a crazy lady who is craving the Presidency.
One of the recurring themes of this campaign will be that Jeb Bush is not conservative enough to be the Republican nominee. This argument is drawn from Bush's stance on immigration and common core. Bush released the video below in order to show that he was a Conservative when Governor of Florida.

His success at GOP events and in early polls has left him positioned as, potentially, a significant contender for the Republican presidential nomination. The first votes won't be cast for nearly a year, but fundraising and hiring are well underway in a process known as the "invisible primary" where candidates test the waters and jockey for position.
For Scott Walker to succeed in winning the nomination he will have to find a way to unite the establishment and the Conservative wing and the Tea Party. Thats the only way to get enough support in the primary to avoid being the flavor of the month.
For a few months now we have not been posting on this site, that will all change in the coming weeks. For the last few weeks I have been running: Mittromney2016central.weebly.com
Mitt Romney announced last Friday that he will not be running for President in 2016 so I decided to move on from that website. You may have noticed that the name of this website has also changed. It went from "Republican Central" to now "2016 Presidential Election." The url will stay the same.
I hope you all stay tuned.
Russia invades, China bullies, Iran spins centrifuges, the Islamic State (a terrorist threat “beyond anything that we’ve seen,” according to the defense secretary ) threatens — and Washington slashes the military. Reason stares.
The video was taken from a 2007 press conference when President Bush was President. In this he warns that if the United States withdraws too early from Iraq like many Democrats wanted to including Barack Obama the troops would eventually have to return to Iraq to face a stronger enemy. Seven years later President Bush was proven right. President Obama withdrew the troops and allowed a safe haven for terrorists to train, grow and demolish everything America risked to rebuild. Now Obama is faced with the inevitable idea that he has to send the troops back in to stop ISIS.
