Ted Cruz Had a Successful Run at Princeton University

Ted Cruz, the junior Senator from Texas, is the first officially announced Republican Presidential candidate for the 2016 election.

Whatever you may think of the man who once delivered a 21-hour filibuster, did you realize that Cruz has a New Jersey connection?

Cruz attended Princeton University from 1988-1992. His freshman roommate Craig Mazin called Cruz “politically extreme” in 1988. "I remember very specifically that he had a book in Spanish and the title was Was Karl Marx a Satanist?” Mazin said, according to The Daily Beast. “And I thought, who is this person?"

He was a young man with a lot to say. According to debate.princeton.edu, Cruz was ranked as the top debater in North America and the nation for 1992. The Princeton Debate Panel is one of the finest collegiate debating societies in the U.S.

Cruz met Catholic political theorist Robert George while at Princeton. Mother Jones reported that George gave Cruz advice on his senior thesis, titled “Clipping the Wings of Angels,” which analyzed the history of the 9th and 10th Amendments.
