People on The Right who keep bashing Cruz need to stop until after the election.

Not where I live. I’m stunned at how many Dems have told me they are surprised at how good a job Trump is doing. He’ll win in easily ‘20. The women here love him.

There are a lot of Democrats in my area. I monitored the campaign signs in ‘16. I was stunned to find that out of 586 homes, there was exactly 1 sign for Hillary and 1 for Bernie.

Re-Elect Cruz. Then, somewhere along the line, President Trump can nominate him to replace Ruth Buzzard on the Supreme Court once her embalming fluid gives out and people notice the stench of decay. Then the Texas Governor can appoint a more charismatic Republican to replace Cruz.

That at least is how it would ideally turn out.

Easy win for Cruz, and Trump will seal the deal.

From Wikipedia:

“Buckley was born November 24, 1925, in New York City, the son of Aloise Josephine Antonia (Steiner) and William Frank Buckley Sr., a Texas-born lawyer and oil developer.[9] His mother, from New Orleans, was of Swiss-German, German, and Irish descent....”

Cruz is the ideological leader of the Senate.

He has to stay there.

We have lots of good choices for SCOTUS.

‘Bend the knee’ is a colloquialism ...as anyone who has ever watched Game of Thrones can tell you.

Do you get cable where you live?

The campaign is just beginning. Remember, Harry Reid was supposed to lose in 2010 but he surged in the last few weeks and won.

The Texans in this forum are always bragging on how their state is perfect and that the other 49 states cannot possibly measure up to their standards of conservatism.

There you go - lying and hating on Texas again.

Kiss off!

Yep - and a lot of folks who remain pissed at Cruz, despite the ways he has been supporting the Trump agenda, will be partially complicit...idiots got their sensibilities chafed and are willing to turn Texas Blue.....”on principle”....

Me too. Even Allen Dershowitz, one of his professors at Harvard said Cruz’ intelligence was off the charts. He nails every point, from political bias to the hyprocrisy of the LEFT during the Kavanaugh hearings. He is the perfect conservative.

And don't forget that Donald Trump himself was born in Queens, NYC.

Not to mention Justice Antonin Scalia, another staunch conservative and native NYer.

I don't know about you Sam, but I'm having trouble identifying any Texan who's had as much impact on the 'conservative movement' in the last 75 years as William F Buckley or Antonin Scalia.

Perhaps Longhorn can enlighten...

Yes I have, but isn’t he taking a dirt nap at this time... And what office’s did he hold before the dirt nap?

You have to be alive and a politician to contribute to the conservative movement?

Don't tell these guys!

Just don't screw the election up for the rest of us. We need Texas to keep Republicans in the senate for President Trump.

Don't screw the pooch Texas!

Same is true for many other states - take away the b cities and the rest is conservative.

If you recall them than indicate what they were. I myself do not recall a meaningful departure from supporting Trump.
