    Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday withdrew his support from Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, saying allegations of sexual misconduct should be looked at by prosecutors. “As it stands, I can’t urge the people of Alabama to support a campaign in the face of these charges without serious, persuasive demonstration that the charges are not true,” the Texas Republican told reporters, according to a Texas Tribune reporter. “Both last week and this week, there are serious charges of criminal conduct that if true, not only make him unfit to serve in the Senate but merit criminal prosecution,” he added.

    Establishment Republicans once dreamed of replacing Texas Sen. Ted Cruz with a less bombastic alternative in 2018. Those dreams now appear out of reach, even as a North Texas Republican with ties to state’s old political guard is on the verge of launching a challenge to the first-term senator. A Fort Worth-based super PAC aimed at replacing Cruz with a Republican in the “leadership style” of President Ronald Reagan has barely raised any money. Its favored candidate, Christian television executive Bruce Jacobson, last week stumbled in the early stages of a possible campaign rollout. And while Cruz, who has more...

    WASHINGTON—Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz warned Tuesday that the United States would face “massive economic costs” if President Donald Trump killed the North American Free Trade Agreement — but that Trump might go ahead and make that decision. Cruz said “NAFTA has created millions of jobs across the United States,” and he said “Texans believe in international trade.” He expressed concern that Trump, whom he generally supports, would seek to use the ongoing NAFTA renegotiation to reduce trade and erect protectionist barriers rather than to expand trade. Reducing access to the Canadian and Mexican markets, Cruz said, would “do profound...

    U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz will be in East Texas on Friday, touring local businesses and taking part in a roundtable discussion at Tyler Junior College. “East Texas is home to many hardworking Texans and job creators that contribute significantly to the engine of Texas’ economy,” Phil Novack, a spokesman for the senator, said. “Sen. Cruz looks forward to visiting with folks in Kilgore and Tyler, listening to their concerns and discussing solutions that will help create jobs and spur economic growth for the region.” At 10 a.m., Cruz will tour the Skeeter Boats manufacturing facility in Kilgore. At 11:30 a.m.,...

    Perfect timing-rattle their cages big time . His confirmation hearings would be right in the heat of the election season, articulating the GOP positions that the cowards in our party won't defend. What are the Democrats gonna do? There's more: When the election is over Cruz has the option of DECLINING the job, starting a new set of hearings, pissing off and exposing OUR turncoats. It all starts with an orchestrating meeting between Trump and Clarence Thomas-payback. LMFAO.

Ted’s tweet broke Twitter and won the caption contest … apparently it also ruined the romper for men (can we get an amen!?) ... They say this like it’s a bad thing. Have you seen the Romphim for men? Seriously, who thought these things were a good idea? GQ apparently. Heh.....

    MISSION — Hours before the president talked about “bad people with bad ideas” entering the country at a rally in Florida, a United States senator strapped on a vest, walked through the thick Rio Grande Valley brush as Friday night turned to Saturday and found what he, President Donald Trump and many discuss in Washington D.C. The senator linked the findings to organized violent crime. “There were more than one that were large, young men with a significant percentage of tattoos that might suggest gang affiliation,” U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said Saturday afternoon, recounting an overnight ride along with...

    Fresh from crushing Soviet-style socialist Bernie Sanders in the CNN debate on Obamacare Tuesday night, Texas Senator Ted Cruz moved his target to another hateful progressive Marxist, Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has been viciously smearing Senator Jeff Sessions, President Trump’s nominee to be the nation’s next attorney general, as a racist. Appearing on FOX News Wednesday morning, Cruz blasted Warren’s repeated use of the race card as a crutch used by Democrats who are incapable of winning arguments while reminding the Democrat Party of their racist heritage, the party of the slavery, Jim Crow laws, segregation, and the KKK....

    Let's get ready to rumble!!!  EDIT: I was misinformed on the topic. They will be debating Obamacare, not climate change. Disregard earlier post if you read it.A year late, Ted Cruz is finally gonna get that one-on-one debate. Unfortunately, this isn't for the presidency, which would have been epic. But this one is not too bad. Cruz and Bernie Sanders will be debating Obamacare," and if anything, it many mean a lot of rational but not-fully-informed people will hear sound reasoning for a change. Jake Tapper and Dana Bash will be moderating this debate, and for once Cruz will have...
  • Democrats Have No Play on Neil Gorsuch: Be Careful (Justice Ted Cruz?)

    Beware anyone who tells you that there is an obvious play for Senate Democrats in handling Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court. There is no such play. There is barely any play at all. It is an awful situation, because being in the minority is awful, and if they botch their next move, it could be more awful still. The most viscerally satisfying play for Senate Democrats would be to disengage completely. As Democratic Rep. Earl Blumenauer put it, “I encourage my Senate colleagues to give Neil Gorsuch the same courtesy Senate Republicans gave Merrick Garland.” But it...

    On the list of surprising visitors calling on president-elect Donald Trump last week, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas ranks right up there with alleged Secretary of State candidate Mitt Romney. While Romney who called Trump a “phony” and talked openly about derailing his candidacy during the campaign had an actual job attached to the meeting with his former nemesis on Saturday, Cruz’s visit was billed as more of a drop-by. It’s true that after the name-calling between Cruz and Trump (who tagged him “Lyin’ Ted’) during the primary campaign; after Trump’s derogatory comments about Cruz’s wife; after Trump’s suggestion that...

    Republican Sen. Ted Cruz signaled willingness to fill the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat on the U.S. Supreme Court Friday afternoon at a conference of conservative and libertarian lawyers in Washington, D.C. “What I will say is that history is long and can take unexpected paths,” he said in response to an audience question about his filling the vacancy. “I think it is absolutely vital that that seat and every other seat that comes vacant on the court be filled by principled constitutionalists who will be faithful to the law and will check their own policy preferences at the door...
