Ted Cruz's 2016 presidential campaign is only days old, but it already serves as the source of a cautionary tale.
The moral of that story is to make sure you secure the dot com bearing your name prior to embarking upon a significant and highly publicized endeavor.
Cruz did not, and now those flocking to the website tedcruz.com are greeted with a message unlikely to ever be approved by the candidate.
It reads, "Support President Obama. Immigration Reform Now!"
According to The Hill, the domain name was claimed back in 2004 by an Arizona real estate firm, Ted Cruz and Associates.
For much of its existence it was used as a professional site, but that changed last spring with new ownership.
In 2012, the business information was removed and replaced with the words, 'Coming Soon, Presidential Candidate, I Luv Christie!!!!!'
Clearly, the person behind it more recently opted to again switch up the message.
Though that address has long been in the possession of its owner, there are a number of newly acquired ones taking aim at the Republican candidate.
Among them is TedCruzForAmerica.com, which automatically redirects to the ObamaCare website, Healthcare.gov.
It was purchased on the same day that the Texas senator announced his sights were set on the White House.
