Senator Ted Cruz is running for a third Senate term in 2024, but that doesn't mean he still doesn't have his eyes set on the White House.

Over the weekend Cruz spoke at a the Republican Jewish Coalition gathering in Las Vegas. During his time on stage, Cruz talked about his first campaign for President and his Senate re-election campaign. And while Cruz didn't just come right out and say he was considering a run for President, the Washington Examiner reports that the event serves as the "unofficial start of the GOP campaign to nominate a 2024 standard-bearer".

Other possible candidates for 2024 who appeared at the gathering included former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Former Governor and former U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

After his speech, Cruz told reporters that he wanted to stand and fight against the policies that are doing so much harm to the United States according to the Washington Examiner.



During a subsequent news conference, Cruz confirmed he is seeking a third term in the Senate. “I’m running for reelection in the Senate. I’m focused on the battles in the United States Senate,” Cruz told reporters. “We need to stand and fight against these policies that are inflicting so much harm on Americans across this country.”

At the same time, the senator refused to close the door on a 2024 White House bid.

“You can consider whatever you like,” Cruz said, when asked if running for reelection means he should no longer be considered a potential 2024 contender. “There will be plenty of time to discuss 2024 presidential. I get that that is a lot of fun in the media to do. There will be plenty of time for that.”

Just when you thought campaign season had ended. It's back. Welcome to the 2024 GOP Presidential campaign.
