Cruz has never run for anything outside of Texas. People in those states don't much like southerners, and absolutely don't trust Texans since Dubya. Like I said, I'd love to see him try.
The popular annual Conservative Political Action Conference, held in the Washington, D.C. area every year and the largest annual gathering of conservatives, has so far not extended an invitation to popular Republican Governor Chris Christie this year.

ABC News reports:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is “not being invited” to CPAC, according to a source close to the event who was not authorized to speak publicly. The source would not answer why Christie, who is widely thought to be interested in the 2016 presidential race, would not be invited to the confab of conservative activists.
