Cruz rages at GOP leader for “abandoning” MAGA candidate Blake Masters: “If you look at this last cycle, Mitch McConnell pulled the money out of Arizona.”
“We’re gonna see horrible Left-wing judges confirmed for the next two years, because of this. We’re gonna see judges taking away our free speech rights, our religious liberty rights, our Second Amendment rights,” says a Texas senator.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) unloaded on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) over the Republican Party’s inability to secure solid majorities in the Senate and the House in the midterm elections.
“Well, let me start off by saying I am so pissed off, I cannot even see straight,” Cruz said Monday on his “Verdict” podcast.
“We had an extraordinary opportunity. We had a generational opportunity. This should have been a fundamental landslide election. We should have won the House and the Senate. We should have a 30, 40, 50 vote majority in the House. We should have 53, 54, 55 Republicans in the Senate,” Cruz told co-host Ben Ferguson.

Cruz blamed McConnell for the losses in Arizona after he withdrew $8 million from a Super PAC that would have helped Blake Masters’ campaign to attack another America First candidate in Alaska.
“Look, I’m sure he will raise money and invest in the race,” Cruz said of senate candidate Herschel Walker’s upcoming runoff in Georgia. “But if you look at this last cycle, Mitch McConnell pulled the money out of Arizona. We could have won — won Arizona. We nearly won Arizona and abandoning Blake Masters was indefensible.”
Cruz accused McConnell of being more interested in preserving his own power than allowing a Republican majority full of MAGA lawmakers.
“Because Masters said he would vote against Mitch McConnell, and so Mitch would rather be leader than have a Republican majority. If there’s a Republican who can win, who’s not gonna support Mitch, the truth of the matter is he’d rather the Democrat win. So he pulled all the money out of Arizona,” Cruz responded.
Because of McConnell’s actions, he said, “the country is screwed for the next four years.”
“We’re gonna see horrible Left-wing judges confirmed for the next two years, because of this. We’re gonna see judges taking away our free speech rights, our religious liberty rights, our Second Amendment rights. It is an enormous missed opportunity. And I gotta say, it is hard to describe my feelings as anything other than rage,” Cruz concluded.
