ted-cruzEven though he has been in the U.S. Senate for less than a year, Ted Cruz already is one of the most talked-about potential Presidential candidates for 2016. The Texas Republican entered the national political scene with a fury, creating buzz wherever he went.

The Republicans have no shortage of young hopefuls waiting in the wings for the next election, but Cruz may be their best bet. Here’s why:

  1. He is a fresh voice
    Many politicians on the left and right have been in office way too long. Cruz is poised to be an anti-establishment candidate, telling people what many of them already believe – Washington doesn’t listen to them.
  2. He is smart
    Even Cruz’ liberal detractors must grudgingly admit that the Harvard Law School magna cum laude graduate is a formidable intellectual opponent. Famed Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz, known for his liberal leanings, has said that Cruz was one of his smartest students.
  3. He stands his ground
    In September, Cruz vowed to speak against the Affordable Care Act on the Senate floor until he was “no longer able to stand.” He relinquished the floor 21 hours and 19 minutes later, ending the fourth-longest speech in the history of the Senate.
  4. He ruffles feathers
    How often does a freshman senator merit more than a passing glance from Senate leadership? Cruz has already become a thorn in the side of Democratic leaders, prompting Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to say that the nomination of Cruz as the Republican candidate would be the end of the GOP.
  5. He can raise money
    As one of the leading voices of conservative activism, Cruz has already proven to be a strong fund-raiser. The Washington Post reported that Cruz raised $1.19 million in the third quarter of 2013.
  6. He knows how to beat the odds
    Cruz became a Senate candidate after a huge upset in the primary over Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst. He went on to beat Democratic candidate Paul Sadler, receiving 56.4 percent of the vote. The Washington Post called it “a true grassroots victory against very long odds.”
