Ted Cruz Appeals to Moderate GOP Voters
NBC – The tone of some 2016 Republicans has gotten so hot that Ted Cruz — who last week challenged Obama to “insult me to my face” — is saying it’s a problem. “Tone matters,” Cruz told the AP over the weekend. “Are there some in the Republican Party whose rhetoric is unhelpful with regard to immigration? Yes.”
It’s striking that the firebrand conservative sees an opening by portraying himself as the measured, sober adult in the primary race. But it should not come as a total surprise given that the two current GOP frontrunners, Trump and Carson, continue to make comments that range from overheated to offensive.
