Born to run
If you can give a 21 hour speech, then you're ready to run for president
, says the former Iowa chairman of Rick Santorum's 2012 presidential campaign:
[Ted Cruz's] lengthy Senate speech "only confirmed to me as an Iowa activist that this man has what it takes to run for president," said Jamie Johnson, a member of the state GOP central committee who was state chairman of former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum's winning 2012 caucus campaign.
Funny thing is, I suspect every single Democratic operative in the country would agree with Johnson. Run, Ted, run!
