    AUSTIN (KXAN) — Texas voters said they’re leaning more toward sending Sen. Ted Cruz back to Washington rather than unseat him in November, according to new polling numbers released Wednesday. The April poll conducted by the University of Texas and the Texas Politics Project showed the two-term Republican incumbent leading U.S. Rep. Colin Allred, his Democratic challenger, by double digits. Pollsters asked a group of 1,200 registered voters between April 12-22 who they would support in the U.S. Senate race if the election was held today. A plurality of the respondents (46%) said they’d vote for Cruz, while 33% shared...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) condemned Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-GA) efforts to oust House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) on Thursday, calling the plan “silly,” “counterproductive,” and “really unhelpful to the country.” After Cruz was asked on the Real Clear Politics Podcast whether he supported Greene’s efforts to oust Johnson as speaker, Cruz replied, “Look, I think it is silly. I think it is seriously counterproductive.”

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) knocked Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-Ga.) effort to oust Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) as “silly,” while praising him as a “strong” conservative. “I think it is silly,” Cruz said during this Thursday appearance on RealClearPolitics’ radio show. “I think it is seriously counterproductive. I think Mike Johnson is a strong conservative who has been given an almost impossible task. He has a tiny majority in the House, just a two-vote majority,” he continued. “That means any three House members run off to the hills, and then the majority evaporates.” Cruz said that Greene’s effort, which was...

    American Thinker ^ | 03/28/2024 | Silvio Canto Jr.
    Over the last few weeks, I’ve received messages from friends, many of whom were concerned about Senator Cruz and the 2024 election. Well, a new poll confirms that Mr. Cruz will win. This is from Marist: Cruz 51, Allred 45. By the way, the RCP average is Cruz +7.3, and no poll has shown Allred over 45.Honestly, this race reminds me a bit of the Abbott versus O’Rourke contest in 2022. What I mean is that O’Rourke spent most of the campaign under 45%. I don’t think that Cruz will win by 11 points like Abbott, but 7-8 is more...

    The Biden administration suppressed information about Iran’s efforts to assassinate U.S. officials to ensure Congress and the American public were kept in the dark, according to a lawmaker on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. "What Americans don’t know is that the Biden administration has gone to great lengths to hide the extent and persistence of those threats" from Iran, Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) said during a Senate hearing Wednesday on Tehran’s network of terror proxies. Those threats include active plots to assassinate former secretary of state Mike Pompeo and other top U.S. officials. The administration has been "abusing the...

    @LeadingReport BREAKING: Texas Sen. Ted Cruz calls for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to step down. Cruz said when asked if it’s necessary for McConnell to step down as Senate leader, “I think it is.” Other Republican senators have had enough of McConnell as well. Sen. Ron Johnson likewise said McConnell’s strategy was “fatally flawed” when he “entered into this secret negotiation with Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer.” “It normalizes thousands of people a day,” Johnson said of the bill. “It probably undermines the future president’s ability to secure the border by having things like a discretionary threshold.” Sen. Rick Scott...

    Texas Senator Ted Cruz is on track to secure reelection in November against either of his top-polling Democratic rivals, according to a new University of Houston poll. The survey found that, in a straight fight between Cruz and Rep. Colin Allred, the leading Democratic candidate, the Republican incumbent would win by nine points. Alternatively, if Cruz faces Texas State Senator Roland Gutierrez, who is also running to be the Democratic nominee, he would secure victory by 10 points. * * * The University of Houston poll is a substantial improvement for Cruz from an Emerson College survey released earlier this...

    With just weeks away before the Iowa Caucus, the candidates in the 2024 Republican Presidential Primary not named President Donald Trump do not seem to be gaining any real traction. Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL), who is in a (distant) second to Trump, has been under the most scrutiny, and rumors of his campaign's suspension are swirling again. The Washington Examiner reported that Ryan Tyson, a long-time adviser of Gov. DeSantis, has supposedly said the campaign is in the "make the patient comfortable" stage, a phrase used for a person in hospice care. However, Gov. DeSantis's communications director, Andrew Romeo, denied...

    FIRST ON FOX: Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, on Wednesday wrote to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas seeking more information about the screening of migrants who have come through the border via the CBP One app and are seeking to board flights. "While Americans must present an acceptable form of identification to fly, or at least have their identities confirmed, TSA (Transportation Security Administration) is permitting illegal aliens without ID to opt for an alternate identity verification process utilizing the…'CBP One' app," Cruz says in the letter to Mayorkas, saying the process "takes illegal aliens at their word"...

    OK I went to his twitter page to see if he's explained his vote on FISA inclusion in the NDAA and not a peep. It's full of interviews etc. of him being against Free Speech on campuses What is he doing? He might not like certain speech but as a Member of Congress it's not up to him to decide. He's losing the plot with all this. John Cornyn is taking heat on the NDAA (rightly). I still haven't heard anything from Cruz. Perhaps someone from TX can find out what the situation is. He can't hide from this forever!

    The Daily Wire, the right-wing media company founded by conservative host Ben Shapiro, released a trailer on Monday for its first full-length feature film, a virulently transphobic “comedy” about a team of male basketball players who decide to identify as women in order to start competing in—and winning—women’s sporting events. The movie, Lady Ballers, which features cameos from Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Shapiro himself, is slated for an exclusive release on the Daily Wire’s YouTube channel. Matt Walsh, who put out his own anti-trans documentary for the company, appears in the film as well. It is a crucial moment...

    [cut] And the truth is—everyone knows it. This weekend, President Trump was invited to step onto the football field in South Carolina, and the place went nuts. An Instagrammer posting about it simply labeled their footage “SC loves Trump.” But Trump had a similar moment in Iowa in New Hampshire, and he gobsmacked the DeSantis team with his reception in Florida. So here’s how this is going to go. Trump will win the Iowa caucuses on 1/15. This will likely dismantle the “Ron DeSantis as Ted Cruz” narrative for this cycle. On 1/23, President Trump will win New Hampshire. This...

'When I ran in 2016, the most fun I've ever had in my life. And we came incredibly close to winning,' he told DailyMail.com in an interview. While Trump is far ahead in the polls, Cruz predicted the race is still up for grabs.
