    and drop the "Ted" in favor of his legal name.

    Remember Ted Agnew? No? He used to be the governor of Maryland. When he ran for national office, he was persuaded to change it to his full legal name, by which you may know him better: Spiro T. Agnew, Richard Nixon's first vice president, who resigned in disgrace before Nixon did.

    If he runs for national office, the Republican spin doctors will certainly make Cruz do the same thing.

    Especially if he ever runs against Julian Castro.
