Ted Cruz’s (R) victory in the GOP Texas Senate runoff yesterday has already so emboldened the Tea Party movement “that activists are warning Mitt Romney he had better get on board,” ABC News reports.
Said Freedom Works spokesperson Andrea Shell: “These guys are going to force Romney to the right. That is our entire mission.”
She added: “If we can elect a really conservative House and Senate that will force Romney to go along with our bold conservative agenda. He’s going to have to really, really go to the right. He’ll be working with guys in the House and Senate. He won’t be able to get away with too many middle of the road policies, especially on things like the deficit.”
