Sen. Ted Cruz hinted in an ABC News interview Thursday that another government shutdown isn't off the table, and fellow Texan Tom DeLay agrees with him.

"If that's what it takes to stand on principle and win, yes. Absolutely," Former House Speaker DeLay told CNN's Anderson Cooper.

"There's a movement out here in the real world," DeLay said. "People are desperate to stop this runaway federal spending. They're desperate to get rid of Obamacare."

Another Texan, former George W. Bush aide Mark McKinnon, disagreed, saying Cruz has "basically burned down the reputation of the Republican Party and is standing on the ashes."

DeLay said Cruz is a major leader of the Republican Party.

"I was just at a meeting last night where people were just singing his praises," DeLay said. "And they will carry him on their shoulders when he gets back to Texas."

McKinnon, co-founder of the bipartisan No Labels group, predicted Cruz will represent Texas for a long time, but doesn't have broad support.

"Mark, you need to come home," DeLay responded. "You have no clue."
