Ted Cruz is ready for a little rest and relaxation.

The Texas senator, who pulled out of the Republican presidential race earlier this month, is taking a week off from Capitol Hill "to recover from a brutal presidential campaign," Politico reports.

"After several months of a nonstop schedule, Sen. Cruz is taking some downtime this week with Heidi and the girls. He looks forward to returning to the Senate next week," said Phil Novack, a spokesman for Cruz, told the political news website.

The break was announced a day after the Cruz released a five-minute video indicating he plans to continue fighting for the principles he stood for in his failed attempt to win the GOP nomination.

And although he's said he'll run for re-election in Texas in 2018, Cruz left the door open for another possible White House bid.

"What we accomplished is frankly insane. Nobody thought we had a prayer to win," Cruz says in the video, entitled "No Regrets."

"But what we did collectively here is we sparked a fire and we started a movement. And that's powerful and it doesn't go away with one election result. Ronald Reagan in 1976 came up short.

"I suspect at that convention there were more than a few tears shed. It's going to be our task to go forward and continue fighting for that movement."

The video ends with the words "To Be Continued."
