Ted Cruz Is Relentlessly Grilled On Flipped Crop Insurance Vote, Watch His Response

Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz was grilled Sunday morning by Fox News host Chris Wallace over his flipped vote on crop insurance. “One final question, and as I say we’re just running out of time, you condemn the Washington cartel, which you call the lobbyists and career politicians who rig the game. I want to ask you about one of your recent acts as a senator,” Wallace said before playing video of Cruz switching his vote in a matter of minutes. “Senator, isn’t that exactly the kind of game that the Washington cartel plays?” Wallace asked. Cruz said that he thought he was voting on another issue because the Senate had “flipped the order of votes.” “I went up initially voting one way, believing we were voting on cloture on the issue, on the Export/Import Bank, and when I voted that way, [Sen.] Pat Roberts made a comment about crop insurance, and I was puzzled, because what I had believed I was voting on concerns the Import/Export Bank, not crop insurance. And I went back to the team and said what went wrong? And the team apologized and said they switched the vote,” Cruz said. Wallace challenged the Texas senator’s claim, noting Roberts’ version of events seemed to be in dispute of it.
