Ted Cruz 2.0?

"Texas tea party activists eager to send another firebrand in the mold of Ted Cruz to the Senate have launched a movement to draft evangelical historian David Barton to run against Sen. John Cornyn," Politico reports.

"Political analysts doubt he could take down a candidate as well-funded, well-known and widely endorsed as Cornyn. But they're not willing to count out an insurgent from the right -- not after watching Cruz come from nowhere two years ago. Barton has deep political roots, having spent nearly a decade as vice chairman of the Texas Republican Party. He is a skilled orator. And he's got the stagecraft down pat: He travels the country to deliver rousing tributes to patriotism, often in red, white and blue Western shirts."
