Ted Cruz Staying Away From Letter on Debate Demands

Fox News' "America's Newsroom"

GOP candidate Ted Cruz said Wednesday he won't be signing any letters from a group of other Republicans who are angry about how the party's debates have been held, but he still thinks that future debates should be moderated by Republicans.

"We have liberal Democrats moderate the Democrat debates and liberal Democrats moderate the Republican debates," Cruz told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" host Bill Hemmer. "I think we should have them moderated by folks who will vote in a Republican primary."

The Texas senator said he was very glad during the debate, when he argued back with moderators about their line of questions, to see his fellow Republicans in the field unite and present a common ground.

But then when the candidates' campaigns got together over the weekend, the letter they drafted "started shifting and people started complaining about one aspect of the format over the other. I don't think we should complain about that."

Last week, Cruz said that he believes conservative talk radio hosts Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh should be tapped to host a Republican debate, since they actually care about issues GOP voters are concerned with, but that doesn't mean he expects them to ask softball questions.

"We don't want softballs," Cruz said. "We just want moderators whose object isn't to bloody up every Republican and cause Hillary Clinton to win. Republican primary voters are trying to make a choice. Who has walked the walk, who has a proven record. Who will be the strongest candidate to turn the country around."

Also on the show, Cruz spoke out against the budget bill, which he called a "slap in the face" to conservatives when it was still being discussed.

"This deal jacks up our national debt by $85 billion," said Cruz. "It shattered the budget cap and gives Obama trillions more in debt."
