Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is knocking down reports he has nearly made up his mind to run for president in 2016.

“Clearly we have an overzealous supporter out there making freelance comments, but to be clear, no decision has been made,” Cruz posted on Facebook.

A source close to the Republican told the National Journal “it's 90/10 he's in.”

“And honestly, 90 is lowballing it,” the adviser added.

“Whoever this ‘anonymous advisor’ was, he or she had no authority to speak, and doesn't know what they're talking about,” Cruz responded.
