Ted Cruz Expresses Concerns Over Potential 2020 Election Outcomes

Does the Senator see dark skies over the horizon?

Senator Ted Cruz fought bitterly with Donald Trump during the 2016 election, as both men navigated an enormous field of Republican candidates vying for the presidential nomination.  Trump was bombastic in his criticisms of Cruz, even going so far as to suggest that Cruz’s father may have been involved in the death of President John F. Kennedy, and insinuating that Cruz’s wife was unattractive.

These days, however, the pair work in tandem, with Cruz acting as a reliably loyal ally of President Trump, often defending the Commander in Chief in situations where other Republicans may not.

But this week Cruz expressed a rare bit of trepidation when speaking to Sean Hannity about the coming election.

“I’m worried about the election. I think it’s really volatile. I think it could go either way. I think we could have a fantastic election, the president could win by a big margin and we could win both houses of Congress, but I also think it could be devastating.

“And I think we either win the presidency and win the Senate, or we lose the presidency and lose the Senate, and I very much hope it’s the former and not the latter. And it depends on turnout. It depends on who shows up.

“It’s one of the reasons I think the confirmation battle over Judge Barrett is so important. We’re going to confirm Judge Barrett. We’re going to do it by the end of the month. The Democrats are losing their mind.”

Cruz’s observation about the “volatility” of the election is a no-brainer, certainly, leaving the downgrading of his own enthusiasm to stand as the more significant aspect of his sentiments.
