Rep. Steve King Warns What Could End The Republican Party

Rep. Steve King (R-IA), who has come out as supporting Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), has recently said that if neither Cruz nor Donald Trump wins the presidential nomination that it could mean the end of the Republican party.

He said, “If they’re maneuvering now to undermine their own rules to move a third candidate into this, I think it could split this party and it could split this party so deeply that it could be the end of the Republican Party.”

Breitbart News Daily host Stephen K. Bannon asked him about a contested convention, and King added “It’s hard to say definitively that if we go to convention and it’s not Trump or Cruz that everything blows up but I can see where that can be the case and maybe even where it should be the case.” King went on to say that he is "still stunned" by how much support outsider candidates Trump and Cruz are getting. He stated:

"There’s more frustration, there’s more anger, there’s more disgust than I had my finger on and I’m generally out there where I pick it up ahead of a lot of them. So, this is a true phenomenon in American politics and American culture. They have been, I don’t know if I want to say lied to so many times, but people haven’t followed through on their promises."

He went on to discuss the president violating the Constitution by saying:

"It’s the obligation of the House and the Senate to call him out on it and to use the Constitutional tools to restrain a lawless president. And because we didn’t stand on those Constitutional principles – you don’t hear that very much in the dialogue out there – but I think that’s at the core."

King concluded, “This is the time to restore and refurbish the pillars of American exceptionalism and if we fail, our Constitution will be lost."
