Add one more sign to the list the Sen. Ted Cruz is running for president in 2016. He’s released his birth certificate, the mainstream media are already digging for dirt from his college days, and he’s attracting campaign-size crowds in his effort to defund Obamacare.
Yesterday morning, The Washington Post’s Greg Sargent was wondering what would happen if Heritage Action held a Defund Obamacare town hall and no one showed up. A standing-room-only crowd in Arkansas put that concern to rest, and Heritage’s tour stop tonight in Dallas, buoyed by an appearance by Cruz, was even larger.

DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has assured us that Obamacare is the law and “you can’t stop it,” but just to be safe, Brad Woodhouse was on hand with his traveling counter-protest.

A distinctly larger crowd was on hand inside, along with a handful of hecklers.
"As a result of you being here today, tomorrow morning you’re going to be audited by the IRS," Cruz #zing

Sustained standing ovation for Cruz. "That my friends is change we can believe in," he says at conclusion. "God bless Texas."
