What now, Ted Cruz?

by Right Wing Fighter

Cruz has been keeping a pretty low profile lately. Since losing the primary, he’s confined himself to routine Senate activities. No more picking fights with Mitch McConnell to boost himself in the primaries. No more Reaganisms about America.

So what will he do now?

He’s obviously personally ambitious, so he’s not out of the running for losing the primary to Trump. He’s not going to give up.

My guess is that he’ll try to position himself as the leading light of the Senate. Sort of an elder-statesman in his forties. He’ll probably pick a few fights with Trump over the next eight years in order to build an independent image. But for the most part he’ll probably position himself with Trump against the establishment. And so garner some of Trump’s popularity for himself.
