The Texas Tribune reports:
Asked in an interview with the Tribune whether he might run for president in 2020, Cruz said “I am focused on the United States Senate.” “Can you commit to serving out your term?” the Tribune‘s Alana Rocha asked.
In response, Cruz began: “You know, as we stand here today, the Texas Board of Education is getting ready to vote on a proposal, a recommendation they received, to delete the word ‘heroic’ from the description of the defenders of the Alamo.”
His reply, which went on for two minutes but did not answer the question, concluded with, “We should be standing up for who we are as Texans and Americans.”
Asked the same question, Beto O’Rourke said, “I will commit to serving every single day of my full six-year term for the people of Texas.”
Cruz was the second to last of the GOP candidates to drop out in 2016, leaving the race one day before John Kasich did the same.
