He’s a So-con, but he has the ability to do an important service for the GOP by broadening its ethnic base. The Republican party needs people who can reach out to non-‘white’ ethnicities but who also have the sort of power base within the party that will enable them to slap down bigots. Ted Cruz can serve in that role.

Point that needs to be thrown in the face of bigots: “Take a look at the GOP’s rising stars along the Third Coast.” Bobby Jindal, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, none of those three is ‘white’. The party needs the votes those men can attract and the energy they can bring. Either move towards the future, or get lost.”

Ted Cruz is Canadian.
