Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has reportedly not ruled out the possibility of mounting a 2024 presidential campaign, even if former President Donald Trump decides to run again. He was recently unofficially campaigning in New Hampshire, interacting with the crowd and posing for pictures while headlining a rally for Karoline Leavitt, Republican candidate for New Hampshire's first Congressional district, the Washington Examiner reports. The senator is, however, waiting to see what Trump plans for 2024.

Trump is widely considered to be planning another presidential bid, but may be waiting until after the November midterms to make it official. Another campaign would come amid a variety of legal troubles circling the former president, including the investigation of classified documents from his Mar-a-Lago estate, interference in the Georgia election, and his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
