Texas senator Ted Cruz plans to announce tomorrow that he is running for US president.

The news comes from a strategist for the first-term Republican senator, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

The 44-year-old will be the first high-profile candidate to formally launch a White House bid, although several Republican contenders are expected to enter the race in the coming weeks.

After joining the Senate in 2013, Mr Cruz established himself as an uncompromising conservative willing to take on Democrats and Republicans alike.

He promises to repeal President Barack Obama’s healthcare law, abolish the tax-collecting Internal Revenue Service and scrap the Education Department.
