Ted Cruz: Tea Party firebrand strikes first blow in Iowa

People look on as a television broadcast declares Senator Ted Cruz the winner of the Republican delegates at the conclusion of the Iowa caucuses at the Boogaloo Cafe on February 1, 2016Once reviled by fellow Republicans as a “wacko bird” eager to shut down the US government, Ted Cruz proved with his Iowa win that his arch-conservatism may yet propel him into the White House. When he did so Monday night, surging past frontrunner Donald Trump as he rode a wave of enthusiastic support, it appeared to validate — if only for a few fleeting hours before the presidential race resumes — the political positions that have made Cruz such a compelling but controversial figure. Cruz, who has fought hard to maintain a prominent place for faith in American life, is battling not just for the Republican nomination.
