Yep! He's doing exactly what he promised the good people of Texas he would do if elected - a concept foreign to most in Washington -  but maybe, just maybe, it will catch on!

Yes he is! I've taken a good close look at that race and I think he has a very real chance to unseat her!

BTW I think she has shown her abject stupidity in her sticking with Reid.

That one is going to be a lot tougher but still possible depending on how things work out between now and then.

IIRC isn't her brother the mayor of NOLA now?  Does she think they will bring out those school buses again and collect up voters they can pay to vote for her?  Has she forgotten most of the poor 9th Ward voters were relocated after Katrina and it is not the same state it used to be?

Appears that it is time to remind the cowardly, faint-hearted, and phony Conservative(s) on here that repeal of ObamaCare was a principle (look it up) enunciated in the Republican Party Platform of 2012 (just a year ago). So in actuality Senator Cruz is being faithful to those principles and, well, you are not.

Another very excellent point!

Fidelity to the party platform is another concept that has been foreign to most elected representatives in Washington! Hopefully that will change now that a few are showing some REAL leadership!

In addition perhaps certain voices should put the criticisms of Senator Cruz on mute as he is only doing what the Republicans promised to do just one year ago.
