Ted Cruz Just Wants You to Like Him

Ted Cruz is a tried and true Conservative. That said, he often rubs people the wrong way. It has been speculated that a big part of why Ted Cruz was unable to secure the Republican nominee had to do with him being unlikable. Honestly, Ted just wants you to like him. This is proof.

Per The Daily Caller:

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas is working hard to get his fellow Senators to like him, going so far as to schedule pick-up basketball games, according to a Monday report from Politico.

The decision to host the games came as Cruz reached out to party leaders in the Senate, as well as the White House. President Donald Trump reportedly depended on Cruz to help usher appointees through the confirmation process, and he delivered, bashing Democrats for their badgering in Session’s hearing.

In order to rebuild his relationships with other members of Congress, he started a weekly basketball game with other Senators in the Russell Senate office building.
