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)
