FILE - In this Oct. 13, 2013, file photo, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, speaks at a rally in front of the WWII Memorial in Washington. Cruz took nothing short of a victory lap in his state of Texas this week, appearing before crowds that overlooked the fact that the Republican who led the charge to kill money for President Barack Obama’s health care law had failed. Now he’s coming to Iowa, where Republicans have the first say in the presidential race, and will view him much more skeptically. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File)

FILE - In this Oct. 16, 2013, file photo Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, talks to reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington after House leaders reached a last-minute agreement to avert a threatened Treasury default and reopen the government after a partial, 16-day shutdown. Cruz made a name for himself by leading the tea party charge toward shutdown. About half of the respondents in a recent Associated Press-GfK poll knew enough about Cruz to form an opinion, impressive for a senator elected less than a year ago. The bad news for Cruz? Their opinion was negative by a 2-1 margin. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)
