Ted Cruz: End of ‘Obama lawlessness’ praises GOP, Greg Abbott, but not Mitch McConnell

Sen. Ted Cruz praised the Republican Senate takeover Tuesday night, but would not verbally endorsed Sen. Mitch McConnell, the likely candidate to lead the new majority. The Texas Republican declined to say whether he would vote for McConnell, the current Senate minority leader to become the Senate majority leader.

Ted Cruz donkeyhotey“That’ll be a decision for the conference to make and that’ll be decided next week,” Cruz told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer twice on CNN. “Tonight what I’m focused on is the results of this election, which is a resounding Republican majority,” Cruz said.

Cruz said Americans are “frustrated with what’s happening in Washington.”

“Now the responsibility falls on us to lead with a positive, bold, optimistic, pro-jobs agenda and I hope that we see Republicans unite,” Cruz said. “I think a lot of voters are skeptical of politicians in both parties and I very much hope that my party can validate and earn the trust that’s been placed in us and that we can stand up, listen to the people.”

Cruz also spoke out in favor of Greg Abbot defeating Wendy Davis to become the new Texas governor.

“Greg Abbott has the heart of a lion and he is our governor!” Cruz said (via Breitbart) before touting the GOP victories in Washington. “We are fixin’ to to retake the Senate and retire Harry Reid as Majority Leader!” said Cruz, calling the election as “terrific night for conservatives.

“For six years we’ve been trapped in the Obama stagnation and malaise,” Cruz said, calling for a united Republican force for leadership. 

“The era of Obama lawlessness is over!” he cried as the crowd cheered wildly.

Abbott, paralyzed in a freak accident in 1984, will become the first Texas governor in a wheelchair while in office, crushed Davis by twenty points: 59-39%.
