Ted Cruz's Wife Taking A Little Break From Goldman Sachs

As a seasoned money manager, she's made sure to hedge her bets on how long that break might be.

Heidi Cruz has set up her out off office email but not fully cleaned out her desk. Her unpaid sabbatical is one of indeterminate length, leaving the door open to return following a term or two as first lady, or, in the unlikely event her husband's campaign crashes and burns, after a couple of months.

Heidi Cruz, a managing director at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. in Houston, has taken an unpaid leave from her private wealth-management job to help with her husband’s campaign for the U.S. presidency, a person familiar with the matter said. Ted Cruz, 44, a Republican senator from Texas, said on Twitter early Monday morning that he plans to run for president in the 2016 election.
