Ted Cruz hasn’t made many friends in the Senate. As of now, he has one endorsement, albeit a powerful one in Utah Senator Mike Lee. His willingness to attack his colleagues and defend the American people by fulfilling his campaign promises and staying true to the conservatism that he represents has thus far prevented him from becoming a Republican Establishment stooge. Despite the pressure, he continues to stay true to his mission.
They want an apology, but it isn’t going to happen.

In case there was any doubt, Cruz has already stated that he’s not going to do it just for the sake of a handful of endorsements and the votes that they would bring.

Is it politically expedient to stick to his guns? Of course not. He could probably win the nomination outright by gathering the support of the Republican Establishment in this manner, but he’s not going to do it. It’s not that he doesn’t want their support. However, making himself beholden to their whims in exchange for the nomination is not worth it to any true conservative. This country needs real strength, not the false strongman tactics of Donald Trump. Would Trump bow if it meant an endorsement? Yes he would.
If there was any doubt that Cruz is willing to fight the Establishment, this should put all of that to rest. Cruz is fighting for the people against the Establishment. He always has. He always will.
