Apparently the bank is chopped liver and/or a liability to his campaign narrative. Or maybe Cruz planned to have a giant balloon arch spelling out GOLDMAN SACHS behind him but the staffer who whose job it was to rent the helium tank dropped the ball and the candidate decided it was better to wait to mention GS 'til it could be done right. With pomp, with circumstance, and with pride.

Ted Cruz, kicking off his 2016 campaign for the U.S. presidency, extolled his wife’s entrepreneurial spirit by telling of her grade-school bakery business. He didn’t mention the 10-year career at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. she just put on hold...“She and her brother compete baking bread. They bake thousands of loaves of bread and go to the local apple orchard where they sell the bread to people coming to pick apples,” said Cruz, 44.
