In a speech at Liberty University, the Texas Republican talked about the effects of “the transformative love of Jesus Christ” on his father and outlined a conservative platform that includes abolishing the IRS and repealing the Affordable Care Act.
“God has blessed America from the very beginning of this nation, and I believe God isn’t done with America yet,” he said.

The first Republican candidate to officially kick off a campaign, Cruz staked out a position on the conservative side of the field, calling for a flat tax that would allow Americans to do their annual tax returns on a postcard, securing the border with Mexico and opposing gun control legislation.

Cruz began the speech by talking about his parents’ immigrant stories: his father, who fled Cuba during political turmoil, and his mother, who became the first in her family to go to college. He then shared how his father became a Christian during a troubled time in his marriage.
“There are people who wonder if faith is real,” he said. “I can tell you in my family there is not a second of doubt, because were it not for the transformative love of Jesus Christ … Iwould have been raised by a single mom without my father in the household.”
The speech was Cruz’s first public appearance since he tweeted Sunday night that he would be running. A 30-second video released Monday morning stressed his father’s immigration from Cuba and his opposition to the Affordable Care Act and President Obama’s executive actions deferring deportation for millions of undocumented immigrants.
As TIME’s Alex Altman writes, the timing of Cruz’s announcement — in the final weeks of a federal fundraising period — shows that he’s willing to disrupt the typical presidential campaign.

“The power of the American people as we stand up and fight for liberty knows no bounds,” Mr. Cruz said during a speech at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., in which he talked at length about his family and his faith as he laid out a case for his candidacy.

Drawing on a stump speech he has developed in recent months, Mr. Cruz struck a tone of defiance and appealed to conservatives to “imagine a president” who would repeal the Affordable Care Act, abolish the Internal Revenue Service, secure the border and forbid same-sex marriage.
His criticism of President Obama also extended to foreign policy, where he denounced the administration’s positions on Israel, Iran’s nuclear program and Islamic extremism.
