Oliver FARRY

Just five years ago Ted Cruz was a successful lawyer but largely unknown outside of his home state of Texas.But since his surprise election to the US Senate in 2012 he has grabbed the national spotlight, becoming one of the great hopes of the right-wing Tea Party movement.Cruz spearheaded the 2013 government shutdown Republicans' resistance to Obamacare, speaking in Congress for 21 hours in September 2013, even fitting in a bedtime story to his two young daughters.UPSOT CruzGreen eggs and ham...Cruz has pitted himself against the Washington establishment, often alienating even fellow Republicans.Born in Canada to US parents but raised in Texas, Cruz only became a naturalised American in 2005.Having served in George W. Bush's administration, he then was Texas' solicitor-general and a prolific litigator.A persuasive orator, Cruz is a man with an almost evangelical belief in America's redemptive powers.9. (SOUNDBITE) (English) REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE TED CRUZ SAYING:"We have faced these challenges before. We have faced the abyss and the American people rose up and we pulled this country back. We have done it before and we stand together. //We can do it again and we can bring back that last best hope for mankind, that is the United States of America."Cruz's platform is pro-life, pro-gun, sceptical about climate change and he is a firm opponent of the Iran nuclear deal.Should he get the Republican nomination, Cruz is likely to be the most right-wing nominee in decades.
