Well Raffy 'Ted' Cruz apparently will sell his soul for a U.S. Senate. Apparently he may have sold his vote. Seems he is not willing to say he'd support soon-to-be Senior U.S. Senator for Texas John Cornyn for a leadership post in the Republican Caucus. Cruz isn't even close to being elected and he's already putting a knife in the back of the man who would be his only Republican colleague.
Why? Seems Club for Growth darling a super right winger Jim CeMint of South Carolina wants to run for Republican Leader or Whip. So it begs teh question: what did Raffy Cruz do to get his endorsement and that of the Club for Growth libertarians? Perhaps committing to throw a fellow Texan overboard in a leadership fight?
Cornyn has stayed out of the primary fight - so far. It will be interesting to see if Cruz can push him into doing otherwise.
