    A new poll suggests there is at least one fellow Republican who could unseat U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz in 2018: Rick Perry. The former Texas governor would beat Cruz by 9 percentage points, according to the forthcoming survey from the Democratic-leaning firm Public Policy Polling. Set to be released later today, the poll found Perry would get 46 percent of the vote and Cruz 37 percent, with 18 percent saying they are not sure whom they would support… In general, the poll shows Texas Republicans want Cruz to be their candidate for Senate again in 2018 — but not overwhelmingly....

Ted Cruz have gotten significantly worse since he refused to endorse Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention, with his favorable rating falling from 59% to 43%. Now more Republicans have an unfavorable opinion of Cruz than a favorable one, reverting to the pattern seen when he suspended his presidential campaign in early May. His image had recovered in the months leading up to the convention.

It wasn’t how Cruz had once hoped to be spending the second week of August, when, had things gone his way, he might have been hopscotching battleground states as the Republican nominee for president.

    Hillary Clinton on Friday evening said she surprisingly agrees with one of her political rivals: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). "I mean something has gone terribly wrong when one speaker says vote your conscience and then gets booed," Clinton said at a rally in Tampa. "I never thought I’d say these words, but Ted Cruz was right," the presumptive Democratic nominee added. "In this election, do the right thing, vote your conscience, vote for your future, vote for the United States of America." Cruz, a former GOP candidate, was booed off the stage Wednesday night after declining to endorse GOP nominee...

    Ted Cruz's extraordinary speech at the Republican not only angered Donald Trump's supporters who were in the hall Wednesday – it set off one of Cruz's senior Senate colleagues, who is now branding him a 'liar.' 'I think what people saw last night is what we have seen in the Senate. No matter how conservative you are, you never can meet Ted's standard,' fumed retiring senator Dan Coats of Indiana in an interview with IndyStar. 'He only thinks of himself, he doesn't think about party. He's a wrecking ball.' said Coates, the former U.S. ambassador to Germany who did two...

    This photo was sent to D.C. Whispers via a pro-Donald Trump Facebook group. It is alleged to have been taken prior to the memorial service for the recently slain Dallas police officers at the hands of a Black Lives Matter-inspired domestic terrorist.
