Houston Paper Revokes Cruz Endorsement

Ouch, no hometown love. Ted Cruz’s hometown paper, the Houston Chronicle, took back their endorsement of him on Wednesday—and even claimed they only endorsed him with “many reservations” in the first place. Yikes. The op-ed calls for a return to the principles of Texas conservative Kay Bailey Hutchinson, the former senator whose seat Cruz eventually won. Adding insult to injury, the Chronicle also mentions they did not endorse Cruz in the primary, only in the general election. “We feel certain she would have worked shoulder-to-shoulder with Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, in crafting a workable solution that likely would have avoided the shutdown all together,” the paper writes. Too late guys, too late.
