The Goldman Sachs loan will continue to be in an issue for Ted Cruz going into the Iowa Caucus. The federal guide to campaign finance clearly mentions that candidates loans with regards to his or her campaign must be disclosed. The Goldman Sachs loan would prompt republicans to question Ted Sachs authenticity.
Ted Cruz wants to appear not only as an everyday American, but also as not a person who can be bought or pressured into what liberal actions that would violate his interpretation of Constitutional protections. However, by rejecting what he calls "New York values," he has also undercut his own position. Cruz has taken New York money, from Goldman Sachs, which hurts his appeal to voters who believe that major financial institutions are a cause of societal ills, while also hurting those who seek an everyday Americanand reject New York as not being representative of the real United States.
Now that Donald Trump has brought up the possibility that Ted Cruz is ineligible to be president based on his alleged foreign birth, Cruz will be too busy defending the very foundation of his campaign. The Goldman Sachs loan was important for making him a senator, but with the "birther" issue hanging over his head, he has a much more important issue to worry about.
In this campaign cycle, intrusions of reality have not diminished candidates' stances and exposure. The introduction of facts has not caused any candidate to apologize or alter his/her statement. One can only imagine that Cruz's statements/appearances will somehow run parallel to his reality, just like everyone else vying to the nomination.
