Ted Cruz Goes After GOP Establishment

If you're wondering why there are so many Republican candidates competing for the 2016 presidential nomination, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a 2016 presidential hopeful argues that is because GOP leaders want to divide conservative primary voters to ensure a moderate candidate gets the nomination. He told a crowd of 200 supporters in Iowa on Saturday, "The last thing the Republican leaders in Washington want to see is millions of Americans across the country mobilizing and coalescing around one strong conservative candidate."

He added Senior Republicans want the party’s various factions at each other’s throats so "once again, they run right up the middle with 24 percent and nominate an establishment moderate who loses the election to Hillary Clinton." Cruz also said, "Here's what the Washington cartel wants — they want us divided. They will do everything possible to fragment us and pit us against each other because if we come together, it's game over. The cartel only knows one thing — how to extort power and money to get what it wants, and if I were elected president, it will stop." Earlier this week, a Fox News poll found that Cruz received only 4 percent support while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush led by 15 percent and Donald Trump took second place at 11 percent.
