Posted on 05/14/2014 7:31:12 PM PDT by SoConPubbie
Tea Party Senator Ted Cruz claimed his first victory in the battle to control the Republican Party on Tuesday night when his two candidates in Nebraska won their primary elections.
Cruz endorsed gubernatorial candidate Pete Ricketts and Senate candidate Ben Sasse won their respective primary races, positioning Cruz as kingmaker in November.
'Ben Sasses decisive victory in Nebraska tonight is a clear indication that the grassroots are rising up to Make DC Listen. Theyre rising up to take our country back,' Cruz posted to his Facebook.

Cruz won his own Senate primary after being endorsed by then-Senator Jim DeMint, the upper chamber's resident kingmaker at the time.
DeMint left the Senate to run conservative non-profit The Heritage Foundation just as Cruz was taking office and Cruz has since sought to fill his mentor's shoes.

He knows whom to support.
It was Sarah Palin!
people will vote for Cruz control?
Maybe you should check out Cruz’s position on immigration.
You mean about him being against amnesty?

Doom! obama is doomed. It doesn’t take Daniel to see the writing on the wall.
The balderdash about reducing lending requirements is a certain indicator of panic. That play resulted in a 50 yard penalty and the coach being kicked off the field.
The best he can hope for is to lose the gambit and then blame as many as he can........ terminal weakness

Did that virus get you again?
I guess you don’t know that Cruz would like to help the likes of Zuckerberg to bring in more cheap foreign workers to take high skilled jobs away from our own citizens.
I don’t know. I like the idea of what my portfolio might do under a Cruz presidency.
And I guess you also don’t know that Cruz would be willing to grant some kind of legal status to those illegals already here. Maybe it’s not a path to citizenship, but it is certainly amnesty.
—which is why I suppose I confused these two threads in the first place...
lol! No, my system's completely free of that virusvirusvirusvirusvirusvirusvirusvirusvirusvirusvirusvirusvirusvirusvirusvirusvirusvirusvirusvirusviru
Thanks for the ping.
How about in his own words? In the first video he discusses an amendment he was proposing to add to Rubio’s bill back a year ago. At about 3:40 of the video he talks about legal status in his amendment.
Later in the video, he talks about the need for more foreign workers.
I too thought Cruz and Rubio were both the real deal when they first came on the scene. Both have shown themselves to be crony capitalists like most of the clowns around them.
Yeah, this doesn’t convince me that he supports amnesty. It convinces me that he proposed an amendment to a bill in the Senate, and didn’t, at that time, support deportation of illegals. But at the same time wanted there to be consequences for those who came here illegally.
And? Yeah, it’s more moderate than I’d like, but this isn’t supporting amnesty. He didn’t propose the bill; he attempted to amend it to take some of the amnesty out of it.
Not exactly fire in the belly, but not enough to get me to denounce him.
