Sen. Ted Cruz hit Republican colleagues on Thursday, saying they will vote for cloture because “they’re scared.” “A lot of Republicans, they have been here a long time, and they are beaten down and they’re scared that if we stand together on this, and if a government shutdown results, that Republicans will be blamed and it is too politically risky. I just think we need to stand for principle and actually stand together,” the Texas Republican said on Fox New’s “Hannity.”
