Palin to Congress: Go on 'Cruz Control'

On Saturday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said Congress could get more done if it went on “Cruz control.”

“You know what I wish Congress would do?” Palin asked. “If they would just for one week… put themselves on Cruz control… on Ted Cruz control.”

She said Congress should try just try it “for a week” in order to “see where things go.”

“I think we’d see some solutions,” she said at the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference in Washington, D.C. that she headlined. 

While introducing Palin, Faith and Freedom Coalition executive director Ralph Reed said Palin was leading conservatives long before conservatives even knew it. He emphasized how critical Palin’s endorsements have been in electing conservatives and singled out her endorsement of Cruz during the 2010 GOP Senate primary in Texas. 

Cruz noted at this year’s CPAC that he would not be in the Senate without Palin’s endorsement. And Palin said, of Cruz, that he is the type of senator who “chews up barbed-wire and spits out rust.”
