Tea party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz urged conservatives to vote for Republicans on Election Day so that the GOP can “retire” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
“Are you ready to fire Harry Reid and make D.C. listen?" the Texas senator asks in a get-out-the-vote video aimed at helping the GOP win a string of close races to capture the Senate.
"We've been campaigning all over the country, and Election Day is finally here," Cruz says. "If conservatives show up and vote, we're gonna retake the U.S. Senate, and we're gonna retire Harry Reid as majority leader.

"Our country is in crisis. Let's stand up together and defend liberty. Let's stand up together and bring back growth and jobs and opportunity. And let's stand up together and bring back the American dream," he says.
"Please, go vote today, and together, let's make D.C. listen."
Cruz is expected to announce his candidacy for the GOP presidential nomination in the next few weeks, and he’s started laying the groundwork for a possible White House run by warning Republicans to stop nominating moderates
"At some point, after Gerald Ford and Bob Dole and John McCain and Mitt Romney, we shouldn’t keep making the same mistakes over and over again," said Cruz.
