Senators deny that ‘everybody hates’ Cruz, but none have endorsed him

Donald Trump’s claim that Sen. Ted Cruz is “nasty” and “everybody hates” him in Washington isn’t ringing true with his Senate colleagues, who say he’s a passionate legislator — though they haven’t rushed to embrace the Texan, either.

The first-term senator has yet to land the backing of a single one of his fellow senators in his presidential bid, even as he’s surged in the eyes of GOP primary voters.

  • Michael Lloyd

    Of course they don’t say they hate him. It’s not PC.

  • Richard Hennessy

    Of course no Senator has endorsed Cruz. He doesn’t fear the Republican establishment, and instead tries to do what he was sent to the Senate to do. Most other Senators fear the establishment and therefore don’t do their duty.

    • Michael Lloyd

      Then he should have showed up to vote on a bill that he co-sponsored. That’s what he was sent to the Senate to do and he gets paid pretty well to be at work.

    • I Seigel

      You may not realize it, but it’s these same senators he would need to pass his legislation if he makes it to the WH. His proposals won’t become law by asking his constituents to vote for them in referendums. Unless, of course, you’re electing a dictator and not a president.
