Ex-Rep. Tancredo: Cruz More Legitimate in Ripping GOP Mainstream Than Rivals


By    |   Friday, 01 Apr 2016 06:37 PM

Ted Cruz has more credibility in attacking mainstream Republicans because "it is very easy to criticize the establishment while you're not in it," said former Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo told Newsmax TV on Friday.

In an interview with "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth, he noted that Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina have all slammed the GOP establishment during the campaign.

Tancredo, who served in the House from 1999 to 2009, is a Cruz supporter.

"All these folks have legitimate complaints — and I'm happy to hear them actually talking about those issues and complaining aloud about the establishment," he told Hayworth. "But, when you think about it, … how much more guts does it take to actually criticize the establishment when you're in it?

"How much more guts does it take to stand up on the floor of the Senate and call the majority leader a liar, which I happen to believe he was and is? You know what that takes?

"I recognize the kind of criticism you get from inside that."
