Ted Cruz went to Iowa, where he sat down with ABC's Jonathan Karl:

The questions are focused on whether Cruz will run for president in 2016. He doesn't say yes, but he doesn't really say no, either.

“We are having a national debate about which direction the country should go…and what I am doing now is trying to participate in that national debate,” Cruz tells ABC. “I’m not focused on the politics…the last office I was elected to was student council. So this has been a bit of a whirlwind.”
