Ted Cruz Doesn’t Need “99 New Friends In The US Senate”

October 18, 2013 6:20 a.m.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) reiterated Thursday that he didn’t come to Washington, D.C. to make friends.

“I’m not serving in office because I desperately needed 99 new friends in the U.S. Senate,” Cruz told ABC News.

Even though Cruz is not looking to befriend his fellow lawmakers, he still wishes that they had come together during the shutdown.

“I wish Senate Republicans had united, I tried to do everything I could to urge Senate Republicans to come together and stand with House Republicans,” he said.

Cruz also said Thursday that he will not rule out another shutdown in his effort to defund Obamacare.

The full interview with Cruz will air on ABC’s ‘This Week’ on Sunday.
