ABC News: In an interview for “This Week” with ABC News’ Jonathan Karl, Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz dismissed talk of a potential 2016 White House bid, along with the question of whether he is ready to run for the highest office in the land after having been a senator less than a year.
“We are having a national debate about which direction the country should go…and what I am doing now is trying to participate in that national debate,” Cruz said Friday while in Iowa, a state frequented by those with White House ambitions. “I’m not focused on the politics… the last office I was elected to was student council. So this has been a bit of a whirlwind.”
Karl asked Cruz about his eligibility for the White House, which has been questioned given that he was born in Canada.
