The Senate, K-Street, and the Wall Street Journal are positively gleeful that Ted Cruz has lost the Republican nomination. In the face of the destruction of Donald Trump, the GOP in Washington would rather increase the risk of losing the Senate than turn the keys of the party over to Ted Cruz.
Every action against Ted Cruz by the Washington elite is designed as a punishment to Ted Cruz, but also as a deterrent to the future. They think they can wait out the devastation Donald Trump will bring and keep their power because, in part, many of them are not on the ballot this year in the Senate.
They know they cannot wait out an unbroken Ted Cruz who inspires more Ted Cruz’s. That is the lesson Cruz must take. If he breaks, he will truly have lost. He should note that every attack made on the campaign trail to undermine him involved those times he tried to work with his own party’s leadership.
Ted Cruz should stand defiant and he should take up Jim DeMint’s mantle and actively recruit for the Senate.
