In what was more likely an accidental admission, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) issued an e-mail to supporters indicating that a Ted Cruz campaign “sent shivers down” our spines.
It’s almost certain that the establishment GOP is also experiencing similar reactions.
In what was clearly meant to be an attack on Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign, announced shortly after midnight, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) may have accidentally admitted that it’s worried about a Cruz GOP presidential campaign—noting in an email to supporters that his announcement “sent shivers down” their spines.
“If you’re like us, just reading that phrase probably sent shivers down your spine or produced a pretty serious roll of the eyes,” the DNC said in what it calls a “Factivist” email to supporters early on Monday. “But as of this moment, Texas Senator Ted Cruz is officially running for president, and if we don’t do everything in our power to stop him, the possibility of President Ted Cruz could become a reality.”
While the DNC is clearly being condescending in its e-mail, having a candidate like Cruz in the race will no doubt cause headaches for both parties.
Heaping scorn upon Cruz, whether it be the liberal media or the DNC or even establishment Republicans will likely not harm his candidacy. McCain referring to Cruz as a “whacko bird,” or the DNC trying to marginalize Cruz as a right-wing extremist will only further expand his credentials with a conservative base.

What do you think of Cruz’ announcement that he is running for President? Do you think he has a chance of earning the GOP nomination?
