GOP presidential contender Sen. Ted Cruz reportedly has no intention to go "on bended knee" to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to patch up relations and unite colleagues against front-runner Donald Trump.

The Texas lawmaker's defiant attitude was revealed Wednesday morning in a tweet from Fox News correspondent James Rosen.


According to CNN, Sens. John Cornyn of Texas, John Thune of South Dakota and Orrin Hatch of Utah all want Cruz to fix his frayed ties in the upper chamber, where he's so disliked that South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham commented last month no one in the Senate would look to convict his murderer.

"I think he's got some bridges to build here," Thune tells CNN. "I think it would be helpful obviously for him — if he thinks he is going to be the guy or wants to be the guy — to come back here to mend some of those fences that he tore down when he was here."

Cruz famously rankled fellow senators during a funding battle over Obamacare in 2013, but his most pointed disagreement with McConnell came last summer, when Cruz called the Senate leader a liar on the Senate floor.

Cruz has portrayed his White House bid as the only one that can stop Trump and eventually win the presidency.
