If the Republican Party were choosing its nominee for President today, it would almost certainly be Ted Cruz - primarily as a result of the 21-hour speech he gave against ObamaCare in the United States Senate September 24th and 25th. Although the occasion of his speech was the effort to de-fund ObamaCare, the substance (which captured the attention of conservatives across the nation) was the call for politicians in Washington, D.C. to listen to their constituents and be more responsive. An online petition to that effect (maked clisten) has garnered more than two million signers to date. Instead of killing time, Senator Cruz used his time to lay out a compelling conservative agenda for the United States.The cover photo was taken by Bill Clark, a Senator Cruz was leaving the Senate after delivering his speech.
