Cruz and Lee are sitting pretty.  Can they capitalize on their "bold public stand?"
Helping to elect Republicans would go a long way towards their future success.
Some people (that would be me) think their nature is more focused in taking down moderate Republicans, not electing conservative Republicans, but I hope they prove me wrong.

I believe the opposite is true. The GOP is reluctant to take conservatives into the fold, and has spoken out against them. There are more conservatives in the GOP, than moderates. Even so, the GOP is taking their votes for granted.  The results that is,  some stayed at home or voted third party.

Their focus is on blacks, Hispanics and Independents, while losing their base. Consider that many Independents were former republicans. They keep harping on a broader base, and that base leans left, which will not pan out. Why can't they see that? Moderates and the right make better bed partners than moderates and the left.
