Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is on a mission.
Cruz is focused on helping his fellow Republicans in the House and Senate take back control.
He is focused on doing this so he can lead the effort to “stop every dumb— thing Biden and Pelosi and Schumer are doing.”
Some pretty interesting headlines are coming out of Turning Point’s AmericFest this week.
One of the biggest of them, however, was Senator Cruz opening up about the GOP mission for 2022.
Cruz stated, “There are really three things I’m focused on right now in the Senate. Number one is leading the fight [to] stop every dumb— thing Biden and Pelosi and Schumer are doing.”
Cruz added that he is “working with the hearts and minds of Americans” in an attempt to “try and find ways to get around the media and speak the truth” through his podcast and books.
He added, “I have focused day and night on winning in 2022, retaking the House and retaking the Senate.”
The Texas Senator concluded, “This year, we’re gonna be bigger, we’re gonna be bolder, we’re gonna raise more money, we’re gonna recruit more candidates, and we’re gonna win more seats.”
Cruz then clearly broke with the usual strategy of Senator McConnell (R-KY), stating, “Often Republican leadership in Washington, they support the candidates who aren’t gonna rock the boats.
“They support the candidates who are going to follow orders and be obedient. I’m looking for people who will rock the boats.
“I’m looking for conservatives who will lead the fight, and the problem is leadership funds the squishy candidates.
“I’m trying to ensure that real conservatives who have the courage to fight have the resources to be able to win and get their message out, because when we articulate what we believe as conservatives, we win.”
I could be wrong, but this is the first time that I can recall Cruz ever having openly challenged McConnell, which is what he was doing here even though he never mentioned the Republican leader by name.
I can’t help but think that Cruz may be considering mounting a challenge to McConnell for his leadership position.
I believe only a few Senators could mount a challenge successfully, but Cruz is surely in that group.
There is a lot to read between the lines here, so we will continue to monitor this.
Would you support Ted Cruz as the GOP Senate Majority Leader if Republicans take the Senate back?
