Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) has been making quite a few trips to Florida, leading many to believe that he may focus his potential presidential efforts in the Sunshine State.

Shortly before he addressed the Republicans at the annual Duval County Lincoln Day dinner in Jacksonville, Florida, Cruz spoke to reporters about his almost certain entrance into the 2016 presidential sweepstakes.

Cruz, who said that he would continue to make visits to Florida in the coming months, also said that he is looking very seriously into the 2016 presidential race, and that it was “now or never,” if he were to make the run.

Reporters also asked him about former Governor Jeb Bush, who is said to be ready to announce his presidential candidacy, and whether he thought Bush was a conservative. Cruz responded that the question needed to be answered by Republican presidential voters, and not him. Cruz added that he believes Bush is a “good man,” but that there existed “significant policy disagreements” between the two.
