Cruz seems to be as beloved by the conservative faithful in the heartland as he is hated by the Republican establishment in Washington. If that’s true, Cruz got the better of the deal. When members of Congress are cloistered within the Beltway, it’s easy to forget a little thing like the voters who put them there. But it is in the real world – that is, back home – that elections are won or lost.
Yep. The media and the establishment politicians can bitch about Ted Cruz all they want, but if you ask me, that just shows their contempt for the Texas voters that sent him to Washington to represent them. After all, it’s not as if Cruz pulled some sort of bait-and-switch on the people of Texas. He campaigned against the establishment from the start, and anyone who pays attention anymore knows exactly what that entails. While I am not sure what to make of him pulling away from primary fights — after all, people like him face an uphill battle in their own quests to get elected, and they need all the help they can get — he has done a fine job representing the people of Texas since he was elected, and ultimately that’s what it’s all about.
