BREAKING: Ted Cruz REVOLTS Against Mitch McConnell

(SNews) – GOP Senators Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Josh Hawley have revolted against the iron fist of GOP Leader Mitch McConnell and have demanded Mitch postpone the GOP leadership vote. Rubio said:

“The Senate GOP leadership vote next week should be postponed. First, we need to make sure that those who want to lead us are genuinely committed to fighting for the priorities & values of the working Americans (of every background) who gave us big wins in states like #Florida.”

Ted Cruz said: “It makes no sense for Senate to have leadership elections before GA runoff. We don’t yet know whether we’ll have a majority & Herschel Walker deserves a say in our leadership.

“Critically, we need to hear a specific plan for the next 2 yrs from any candidate for leadership.”

Josh Hawley said:

“Exactly right.

“I don’t know why Senate GOP would hold a leadership vote for the next Congress before this election is finished.

“We have a runoff in #GASenate – are they saying that doesn’t matter?

“Don’t disenfranchise @HerschelWalker.”

According to Politico:

Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Rick Scott (R-Fla.) are circulating a letter pressing colleagues to sign onto a postponement of elections currently scheduled for Wednesday morning.

“We are all disappointed that a Red Wave failed to materialize, and there are multiple reasons it did not,” the senators say in the letter, first obtained by POLITICO.

“We need to have serious discussions within our conference as to why and what we can do to improve our chances in 2024.”

…“Holding leadership elections without hearing from the candidates as to how they will perform their leadership duties and before we know whether we will be in the majority or even who all our members are violates the most basic principles of a democratic process,” their letter reads.

“It is certainly not the way leadership elections should be conducted in the world’s greatest deliberative body.”
