Skip to comments.Ted Cruz Suspends Work to Help Elect Republican Senators, Inadvertently Helps Democrats
Posted on 07/16/2014 5:52:42 AM PDT by cotton1706
Texans know Ted Cruz has a tendency to not play nice with others. There was a hope among establishment Republicans the Junior Senator form Texas was going to start acting as more of a team player in Washington and with the larger Republican Party when he accepted the role of vice chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC). The NRSC is the official arm of Senate Republicans designed to elect Republicans to the US Senate. Cruz served without controversy in his leadership position for several months until incumbent Senator Thad Cochran of Mississippi was pushed into a runoff with TEA Party fueled challenger, State Sen. Chris McDaniel. Cruz, who is a product of a TEA Party uprising in Texas, had a natural inclination to make sure McDaniel was at least on equal footing with the long-time incumbent.
But after Cochran's victory with an assist from the NRSC, Ted Cruz is causing problems with his fellow Senators; problems which may, again, cost Republicans a chance at control of the US Senate in November. After the jump, learn what new problems Ted Cruz is causing for the Republican Party in the name "true conservatism" now.

This whole article is such disingenuous nonsense. And note that they leave out Carly Fiorina, Pete Hoekstra, George Allen, Tommy Thompson, Heather Wilson, Eric Berg, Denny Rehberg, and Connie Mack, all Establishment losers in 2010 and 2012.
They're pissed that Cruz is not helping the NRSC to fundraise and eventually defeat conservatives.
The NRSC exists to get moderate or Establishment types elected, and then to keep them there. They've had to spend millions this year and their coffers are not being replenished because we know the game and are not giving them money. I hope they're bled dry, just for their support of Arlen Specter and Charlie Crist alone!
First things first. It would be nice to get the Senate this year, but purging RINO’s is actually a higher priority. Getting the senate with a bunch of McCains and McConnels is no victory.
Never give a penny to alphabet RINO PACs. Contribute directly to candidates that you support. The RINO PACs will use your money against them.
I’m fine with Cruz aiding the best candidate, party be damned.
That’s exactly right!
Don't sweat it.. 3 or 4 is all the GOP will gain anyway.
Burnt Orange Report, or BOR for short, is Texas' largest political blog, written from a progressive/liberal/Democratic standpoint.
The GOP and Team Romney DARE to attack Sen Cruz.
Is this not what we saw with sen. Thompson?
Is this not what we saw with Gov. Palin?
Is this not what we saw with the Speaker?
Conservatives must swear to remove all support
from these phony backstabbers.
A RINO led Republican majority is a Democrat Lite Obama Lite majority.
The nation circles the drain under this administration, and the GOPe has proven itself utterly worthless and unwilling to represent the people who've supported it.
Cruz is one of the few of its members worth a damn.
A Senate where RINOs hold the balance of power, will mean that Democrats will be able to pass what they want, block what they don't, and blame Republicans for everything.
Better to not "control" the Senate, in that case.
Im fine with Cruz aiding the best candidate, party be damned.
This is one of the reasons I like Ted Cruz so much!
I don’t know what they are. I post stories that I find interesting or that provide insight.
You Sir, have illustrated things perfectly! Thank you.
And, of course, the most "electable" of them all, Scott Brown of Massachusetts who lost to a fake Indian who had practiced law for years without a law license.
LOL! Yep, and they're hoping their bad-mouthing will dissuade voters from following him because of it.
What THEY don't get is that his running around flipping over Establishment applecarts is exactly why we sent him there in the first place!
I understand that, and I appreciate the time you spend doing it. But without knowing what the source is all about, insight cannot possibly be achieved.
It's Burnt Orange. Don't expect anything else. That's what they do.
To keep track of what the enemy is pushing this week?
Some will resent articles from anti conservative sites. But in reality you can’t stick your
head in the sand and expect to gain ground. They exist and it’s important to know what they
are doing. Just understand what they are and what they are promoting. Take care.
