Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz took a shot at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell during a Monday podcast. Cruz blamed McConnell for not supporting Arizona Senate candidate Blake Masters.
Cruz's podcast, titled Verdict with Ted Cruz, featured him discussing the failures of the Republican Party at the midterms with co-host Ben Ferguson. Cruz said McConnell refusing to back Masters was "indefensible."
“Well, Ben, let me start off by saying I am so pissed off, I cannot even see straight,” Cruz said.
“We had an extraordinary opportunity. We had a generational opportunity. This should have been a fundamental landslide election. We should have won the House and the Senate. We should have a 30, 40, 50 vote majority in the House. We should have 53, 54, 55 Republicans in the Senate,” Cruz continued.
According to a report from Fox News, McConnell’s PAC reportedly yanked $8 million in campaign spending from Arizona after Masters won his primary election.
Cruz was also asked whether he will donate to the Georgia runoff. He said he will but also pointed out the Republicans should have won Arizona.
“Oh, look, I’m sure he will raise money and invest in the race … But if you look at this last cycle, Mitch McConnell pulled the money out of Arizona. We could have won — won Arizona. We nearly won Arizona and abandoning Blake Masters was indefensible,” Cruz said.
“Explain to me, Senator, why in a race where the polling showed that we had a legitimate chance of winning there. Why did he pull out that money from Masters who desperately needed it?” Ferguson asked Cruz.
“Because Masters said he would vote against Mitch McConnell, and so Mitch would rather be leader than have a Republican majority. If there’s a Republican who can win, who’s not gonna support Mitch, the truth of the matter is he’d rather the Democrat win. So he pulled all the money out of Arizona,” Cruz replied.
