Ted Cruz is in trouble. Not with just folks outside of his home state. Apparently there is already a movement afoot in Texas to unseat Cruz. Congressman John Carter from Texas’s 31st congressional district has already told several media sources that former Governor Rick Perry is going to challenge Ted Cruz for his senate seat in 2018.
Not only are Texans outraged about what Cruz did at the RNC convention, many more have become disillusioned with the senator’s views on free trade and immigration. Moreover, Cruz was exposed as someone who may not even be eligible to hold a senate seat because he was born in Canada to only one U.S. born parent.
And thanks to Wikileaks we learn that Cruz’s father, Raphael Sr. was hanging out with Lee Harvey Oswald at the time of the JFK assassination. Something Cruz has cited as why he refused to endorse Donald Trump. People should wonder about the allegations against Heidi Cruz. Her globalist ties and mental health issues. Both are likely true. There is more than reasonable doubt among Texans.
We also know for a fact that Cruz is an ineffective senator who is not respected or liked by his colleagues. Former house speaker John Boehner has given Cruz the nickname “Lucifer”. Ted Cruz is damaged goods. He’ll be lucky if he can go back to practicing law.
In the meantime, Rick Perry is Texas through and through. Love him or hate him, his tenure as governor was mostly positive. And Perry has smartly boarded the Trump train, albeit a tad late. He at least recognized the importance of keeping Hillary away from the nuclear codes.
Governor Perry will have the full support of the establishment behind him and a strong grassroots coalition of real Texans who will enthusiastically support unseating the Canadian born Cruz.
The bottom line: Ted Cruz committed political suicide when he failed to endorse Donald Trump at the RNC convention. And he will lose big to Rick Perry in the 2018 senate primaries.
Bye bye lyin’ Ted.
