So, for Cruz it has started already.
This very capable and personable man who is fast becoming visible within the Republican Party now seems targeted for destruction by the Democrat machine. Bill Richardson's nasty comment about Cruz needing to re-defined as something other than an Hispanic, and Reid's pathetic comment indicates that the left is fearful of Cruz who can run intellectual circles around ANY Democrat. Once it starts, it won't stop.
The left cannot debate issues. Instead they try to destroy the reputations of political opponents they cannot come close to measuring up to.
