Cruz: GOP Leadership Blocked My Fundraising After ACA-Linked Shutdown

Per a Washington Post report, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) claims that after the 2013 government shutdown over the Affordable Care Act both he and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) “had their money spigot turned off by (GOP) leadership because blocking access to money is how leadership disciplines members.”

Cruz made the claim in an interview with the New Hampshire Journal, then followed it up the next day with comments at a brunch. He declined to name names, however.

In 2013 we got quite a lot of money from D.C. PACS, and when the defund fight happened, that dropped to almost zero,” Cruz said at the Rockingham County Republican Committee and Seacoast Republican Women Brunch ….

Cruz said that there were “multiple reports” from big-money fundraisers in Washington that “they had been told in no uncertain terms, do not write a check to these guys.”
