Fellow Conservatives:

16cruz_cnd_articleLarge211b3a.jpgThe Republican establishment in Washington has turned against U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).

In a string of stories published this week by the Washington Post, POLITICO, and the New York Times, Republican senators joined liberal Democrats in openly criticizing the Texan.

One Republican — who lacked the courage to identify himself — said Cruz should keep quiet and "get to know the Senate." He said Cruz’s outspoken approach "takes away from his ability to be an influential legislator."

Another Republican lectured that if Cruz wants to be respected by the Senate, he needs to prove that he can "do a deal" — as if cutting deals that compromise his principles is respectable.

These senators want Ted Cruz to keep quiet and play the Washington game. They think he’ll back down if they publicly smear him.

We predicted this would happen last week when stories began to emerge about Cruz’s willingness to stand strong. We knew his colleagues in the clubby Senate would be threatened.

This isn’t the first time the establishment has launched an effort to smear a conservative. They also did it to Jim DeMint (R-SC), Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Ron Johnson (R-WI).

During the 2012 campaign, Ted Cruz said, "The reason I’m running is not merely to vote right. What we have a desperate need for is real leadership to stand up and defend free-market principles. And if I am not helping lead the fight, standing there with arrows in my torso, I will not be doing my job.

Ted Cruz is now taking arrows from the Washington Post, POLITICO, the New York Times, and many of his own Republican colleagues.

Ted Cruz is keeping his word.

We want you to know about these attacks because many of you supported his campaign. If you want to thank Senator Cruz for standing strong, you can write to him by clicking here.

Thank you for helping us change the Senate.

Best regards,
