Ted Cruz Bashes Mitch McConnell From The GOP Debate Stage

ap

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) showed no signs of cooling his ongoing beef with Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and even brought the majority leader up during the GOP top-tier debate Thursday.

When asked about “Kate’s Law,” a proposal to crack down on certain undocumented immigrants, Cruz said:

“Not only will I support it, I have authored Kate’s law in the United States Senate and filed that legislation. I tried to get the Senate to vote to pass Kate’s law on the floor of the senate just one week ago and the leader of our own party blocked a vote on.”

Previously, Cruz slammed McConnell from the Senate floor when McConnell would not allow a number of amendments be voted on in conjunction with a highway spending bill last month.
