Updated 6:55 p.m. | A controversy is stirring up in Texas about leadership, conservatism and state loyalty.
It began last night, when the Dallas Morning News published an interview with former Solicitor General Ted Cruz. Cruz said he was undecided on whether he would vote for Sen. John Cornyn for GOP Senate Whip in November, should he be elected to the Senate.
Cruz “won’t decide his vote for GOP whip, one step below party leader, until November — once it’s clear how many ‘constitutional conservatives’ got elected,’ Todd Gillman of the Dallas Morning News wrote.
“I’m not going to prejudge,” Cruz told the paper.
Cruz walked back the comments today on Lubbock radio station KFYO, questioning the context of the statements.
