    4 Days After Trump Campaign Kickoff, Ted Cruz Drops Major 2024 Announcement

    Published on

    Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, a Republican, presented his campaign strategy for the 2024 elections on Saturday.

    “I’m running for re-election in the Senate.”  After speaking to the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas, Cruz declared, “I’m focused on the battles in the United States Senate.”

    He declared, “We need to stand and fight against these policies that are inflicting so much harm on Americans across this country.”

    Cruz was questioned about the possibility of a 2024 rematch between him and former President Donald Trump, who last week declared his intention to run for the Republican presidential nomination.

    “You can consider whatever you like,” Cruz said. “There will be plenty of time to discuss the 2024 presidential. I get that that is a lot of fun in the media to do. There will be plenty of time for that.”

    Cruz discussed the caliber of leadership on the Republican side of the Senate aisle on Saturday.

    Cruz was one of those who took part in the futile attempt last week to stop Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky from being re-elected as the minority leader on Wednesday.

    According to the Texas Tribune, Cruz addressed the Republican Jewish Coalition, “We need a real debate about how are we going to lead during the next two years in the minority in the U.S. Senate.”

    “And the question that I posed to Mitch McConnell and our leadership was very simple: ‘Is there anything on which we are willing to fight?’ I stood in front of the conference, and I said: ‘Listen, I’ve traveled all over the country. I’ll tell ya: People are dispirited and demoralized because they say that Republicans in the Senate don’t fight.’ And there’s a reason for that, which is that Republicans in the Senate don’t fight,” he added.

    Cruz talked about Trump and his early announcement of his candidacy while predicting a heated race for the GOP presidential nomination in 2024.

    “There are some people who want him to do that. There are some who don’t. I think that process will shake out. We’ve seen at this conference here there some people clearly positioning to run against him. I don’t think he’ll run uncontested. I think there will be candidates that run against him,” Cruz said, according to Fox News. “But we’re very early in this process. There’s plenty of time for the debates and discussions.”

    Cruz noted that blaming Trump for the failure of the Republican Party to gain all it hoped in the midterm elections is misplaced.

    “There’s lots of people who want to point the finger at Donald Trump and point to the quality of candidates,” Cruz said. CONTINUE READING…
