Republican Senator Says He’ll Support Bernie Sanders If Ted Cruz Wins The GOP Nomination

Ted Cruz is so hated by some his fellow Republicans that Sen. Ricard Burr (R-NC) told supporters at a fundraiser for his reelection that he will support Bernie Sanders if Cruz wins the Republican nomination.

The AP reported, “Cruz has become such a pariah that one of his colleagues, Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, told supporters at a campaign fundraiser for his own re-election that he would vote for liberal Sen. Bernie Sanders for president before Cruz, according to one person who attended the event. Burr did not appear to be joking, said the person, who demanded anonymity to discuss the private gathering.”

You can file Burr’s remarks under the category of Republicans really can’t stand Ted Cruz. Sanders is liked by his Senate colleagues, but he has little in common with a conservative like Richard Burr. It speaks volumes about just how strong the anybody but Cruz feeling is among the people who know the junior senator from Texas the best.

Republicans might not agree with Sanders on hardly anything, but they have at times over the years praised him for his principled honesty and integrity. Those are qualities that have never been associated with Ted Cruz. The anti-Cruz feelings are so extreme among Republicans that many in the party are more willing to lose with Trump than they are willing to take their chances on having Cruz at the top of the ticket.

If Cruz did win the Republican nomination, and Sanders was the Democratic nominee, it could set up a nearly unheard of scenario where some Republicans would cross over and support Sanders. It isn’t very likely, but as Burr’s comments indicated, there are some Republicans who would rather support a Democrat, who they may disagree with, but has integrity, than support Ted Cruz.’
