    *This transcript was generated by a third-party transcription software company, so please excuse any typos. On Thursday morning, Republican Senator Ted Cruz attended a breakfast gathering for the Christian Science Monitor where he warned, the Texas could absolutely be in play in 2020 now there’s a couple of quotes from Ted Cruz at that breakfast meeting that I want to read, and again, I have to go ahead and admit wholeheartedly I agree with most of what Ted Cruz says here and here it is. I think the Texas election in 2018 is powerful foreshadowing for what to expect across...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) warned that President Trump will lose in 2020 if he cuts a deal with Democrats regarding gun control. Roll Call reports that Cruz offered this observation while speaking to reporters at a Thursday breakfast. He contended that conservative voters will stay home if Trump and the Republicans as a whole cave to Democrat demands. He was asked about the possibility of Trump making a deal with gun control stalwarts Sens. Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Joe Manchin (D-WV). Cruz said, “We’re going to see record-setting Democratic turnout. The only element missing is demoralizing conservatives so they stay...

    Mandated by law, Saturday, July 13 is "Nathan Forrest Bedford Day" Tennessee with an annual proclamation issued by the governor each year. On Friday evening, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas slammed Governor Bill Lee for signing the announcement once again.  This is WRONG. Nathan Bedford Forrest was a Confederate general & a delegate to the 1868 Democratic Convention. He was also a slave trader & the 1st Grand Wizard of the KKK. Tennessee should not have an official day (tomorrow) honoring him. Change the law. https://t.co/XBgoRCBoI0— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) July 12, 2019 But why did he have to sign the...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) hopes to continue working across the aisle by offering to team up with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) for another bill. This bill would fast-track the FDA to approve birth control to be sold over-the-counter instead of requiring a prescription. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted her approval of the statement, suggesting people needed to “pass it on.” Cruz responded, asking if she would like to work on a bill to make that a reality.

    “I’m worried about 2020, I think it’s 50-50. I think it’s a coin flip,” said Ted Cruz, the Republican U.S. Senator from Texas. The 2020 presidential race happens when the country is “deeply divided.” “It is an incredibly polarized country,” he said. “I think it all comes down to turnout.” “I think the Left is going to show up in massive numbers,” he continued. “And it all comes down to who shows up on the center-right.” Ted Cruz was on the Ben Shapiro Show Sunday when, 45-minutes into the interview, Shapiro asked Cruz for his assessment of the 2020 election...
  • Sen. Ted Cruz Says Closing US-Mexico Border ‘Would Be Devastating To Texas’ (doesn't have to be)

    WASHINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – While he has expressed support for President Donald Trump’s plans for a border wall, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said in a statement he is against closing the border to slow the flow of South American migrants and asylum seekers. “Closing the border to legal commerce would be devastating to Texas. Millions of jobs, in Texas and across the country, depend upon trade with Mexico, and the federal government shouldn’t do anything to jeopardize those jobs,” Sen. Cruz said.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Sunday the Democratic House majority is determined to impeach President Trump, regardless of the findings in special counsel Robert Mueller’s now-concluded investigation into Russian election meddling. Lamenting what he called “extremism” on the part of the Democrats, Cruz cited remarks by House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) in an earlier segment on CNN's "State of the Union" that the House’s mandate goes beyond investigating crimes. Cruz added that the House "doesn't care about the basis" for impeachment. When asked by CNN’s Dana Bash whether he agreed with Trump’s frequent characterization of Mueller’s investigation as a...

    JNS.org – US Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has reportedly been spearheading a resolution explicitly condemning antisemitism that he plans to introduce this week. Jewish Insider reported the development on Friday, citing “a source familiar with the plan” who said it is “just a condemnation of antisemitism. There’s nothing extraneous. The entire thing clocks in at just over 100 words.” It comes one day after the US House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a resolution condemning antisemitism and other forms of bigotry. The House legislation was in response to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who on Sunday defended her recent remarks accusing her...

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, accused Democrats of going "bat-crap crazy" during a speech to a gathering of conservative activists on Friday in which he assailed the other party for its views on abortion, border security, and the environment. “I think there is a technical description for what’s going on, which is that Democrats have gone batcrap crazy,” Cruz told National Review editor Rich Lowry at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Oxon Hill, Md. “They are getting more and more and more extreme on every issue,” Cruz said.

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, one of the Senate’s most knowledgeable experts on constitutional law, remains skeptical of the merits of President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration to build a border wall, he told the Star-Telegram Tuesday. “I am still assessing the legal authority of the arguments that the administration is putting forward,” Cruz said after a meeting with White House lawyers off the Senate chamber earlier that day. The meeting was aimed at reassuring Republican senators, many of whom publicly urged the White House not to use an emergency declaration to pull money they’ve appropriated for government agencies to fund a...

    Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke is changing his tune about the possibility of running for president in 2020. Prior to his narrow loss in the Texas US Senate race to Republican Ted Cruz, O'Rourke had repeatedly insisted he would not run for president. Now, he's leaving the door open. He said Monday he will finish his term in the House in January and focus with his wife and children on "being together as a family" until then.

    The Spectator ^ | September 12, 2018 | Daniel McCarthy
    Four years ago a seemingly invincible US senator came within a percentage point of losing his seat in an unexpectedly close election. Mark Warner was pretty moderate as far as Democrats go, a good fit for a state, Virginia, that had drifted out of the Republican column in the last two presidential elections and just elected a full slate of Democratic statewide officials a year before. But midterms are when presidents and their parties get rebuked, and Warner, a telecom millionaire who had once been tipped as presidential contender, took his support for granted. The Republican, lobbyist Ed Gillespie, was...

    HOUSTON — Days after a top adviser to President Trump questioned Senator Ted Cruz’s chances of winning re-election, the Texas lawmaker casually stepped into the pinnacle of his hometown’s energy industry on Tuesday — the lobby of the Petroleum Club of Houston, on the 35th floor of a downtown skyscraper. Mr. Cruz shook hands while holding a cup of McDonald’s coffee. By the end of his remarks to the American Petroleum Institute, the audience rose for two standing ovations. It was not a campaign event, but it might as well have been: Mr. Cruz was relaxed and confident, eager to...

    Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) former campaign spokesperson said that it’s “possible” for Cruz to lose his reelection bid to Democrat Beto O’Rourke. Rick Tyler, who served as Cruz’s former communications director during his 2016 presidential run, appeared on MSNBC Sunday and admitted that Cruz could lose in the red state. “As the former Cruz strategist, it does seem as though the signs are that Ted Cruz might actually lose this race?” MSNBC host Kasie Hunt asked. Tyler said that even in a predominately Republican state, O’Rourke is posing a real challenge for the senator. “It’s possible

    Washington (CNN)Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz told supporters at a rally on Saturday that Democrats wanted to make Texas like California and listed off a few things as stereotypical staples of the blue state. "We are seeing tens of millions of dollars flooding into the state of Texas from liberals all over the country who desperately want to turn the state of Texas blue," Cruz said. "They want us to be just like California, right down to tofu and silicon and dyed hair." Cruz added that his wife, Heidi Cruz, was "a California vegetarian." "She's wonderful, but I brought her...

    Ted trying to lighten things up and be a bit more "likeable" I think. He's introduced by his dad.(heavy Hispanic accent never hurts in TX I suppose) Think it might be Ted's HS. He talks about the Kavanaugh hearings including Spartacus which is where the vid is cued up to. Seems like a small venue and the audio goes bad at times. He needs some money behind him or something. Maybe it's just a small/medium sized town. I suppose that's how it is running a State campaign. Looks like he's hitting quite a few of them. https://www.eventbrite.com/o/ted-cruz-for-senate-8321610348 Sometimes 4 stops...
