The topic of Sen. Ted Cruz’s speech Monday morning at Liberty University remained mysterious on Saturday.
Campaign aides continued urging reporters to attend, calling it an “important” speech. But they still declined either to shoot down or confirm speculation that Cruz will use the appearance to announce a presidential exploratory committee, or even to formally launch his 2016 campaign.
Such a move would preempt a number of rivals in the crowded GOP field – in particular, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, who reportedly plans an announcement in Louisville on April 7, during a two-week Senate recess.
