Ted Cruz Is Campaigning With the A-Team of Congressional Crazies
The more I think about it, the more I believe that we’re all going to wake up the morning after the Iowa caucuses forced to come to grips with the fact that Tailgunner Ted Cruz pretty much has swept the field. His stump rhetoric is pitch-perfect for the Bible-banging hayshakers who run the Republican caucus process out there. He’s organizing the hell out of the state, shipping in volunteers from all points of the compass. And now, according to Tiger Beat On The Potomac, he’s unbolted the door to the Locked Ward and let all the pigeons loose.
Lawmakers like Reps. Steve King of Iowa and Mo Brooks of Alabama are attending campaign rallies with Cruz…So far, Reps. Jim Bridenstine of Oklahoma, and Louie Gohmert and John Ratcliffe of Texas have been surrogates for Cruz at Republican debates. And Bridenstine recently hosted an event in Tulsa and did an Internet ad for the campaign pushing back against Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s attacks on Cruz’s national security credentials. Other lawmakers who have endorsed Cruz include Texas Reps. Randy Weber, Brian Babin, Michael Burgess and John Culberson. Reps. Jody Hice of Georgia, Sam Graves of Missouri and Dana Rohrabacher of California are also behind Cruz.
