Senator Ted Cruz acknowledged on Tuesday that he is seriously looking at running for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, a move that keeps his name in the mix as former Governor Jeb Bush of Florida and 2012 nominee Mitt Romney send signals about their own intentions.

During an appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Cruz said he expects the field to form in the next several months. Asked why he was waiting to declare, the Texan said he is at least strongly considering a campaign.
