Earlier today, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz became the first major candidate to officially announce he’s making a run for the presidency.
The Texas senator announced his bid via Twitter.
I'm running for President and I hope to earn your support! pic.twitter.com/0UTqaIoytP

It is likely a move to show young voters that he’s got plenty of Internet savvy.
Cruz also launched his official campaign website, tedcruz.org.
What should have been a celebratory day for the Senator was soon overshadowed by a HUGE rookie mistake: someone on his team didn’t secure the domain tedcruz.com. The owner of that domain, an Arizona attorney who shares the same name, decided to troll the senator after his big announcement with a pro-Obama and pro-immigration reform splash page.
