Brooks: Cruz vs. Rubio Is ‘Resentment Vs. Hope’

New York Times columnist David Brooks described the competition between GOP presidential candidates Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Florida Senator Marco Rubio as “resentment vs. hope” on Friday’s “PBS NewsHour.”

Brooks stated of a potential Cruz-Rubio match-up, “it’s resentment vs. hope. Cruz is waxing eloquently against Muslim, Syrian refugees. He’s talking about shutting down the government. He’s very anti-immigrant, where Rubio is much more in the mainstream of the party, a little hopeful on immigration, hopeful about American foreign policy. So we’ll see which emotional tone the Republican Party is ready for. I suspect it’s the Rubio one, but who knows?”
