Senator Ted Cruz announced that he was running for president on Monday morning, and by 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, his campaign had already raised $1 million, according to the Washington Post. By Thursday, the campaign had raised $2 million. Ninety-six percent of the donations received online were in increments of less than $250, and most came from Texas. You best not waste all your excitement now, though, potential Republican donors, since April is shaping up to be the Oprah’s Favorite Things of election announcements. 

You get a presidential candidate! You get a presidential candidate! You get a presidential candidate! Everybody gets a presidential candidate! Everybody gets a presidential candidate!
