Texas Senator Ted Cruz announced his candidacy for presidency, becoming not only the first candidate to officially announce, but the first in American history to announce on social media, in this case on Twitter.
Cruz’s announcement came at the stroke of midnight on March 23, a date that the new official GOP presidential candidate definitely didn’t pick randomly.
From Cruz’s newly created “Ted Cruz 2016” Twitter account, Cruz’s team revealed why March 23 was chosen to announce his presidential bid, noting that it is the anniversary of the date that the “disaster known as Obamacare” was signed into law:

Cruz has repeatedly vowed to repeal every word of Obamacare, should he be elected to the presidency.
