Ted Cruz built a brand on being the most hated man in Washington. Now what?

发布日期:2016年05月11日 游览次数:25

This post has been updated with Ted Cruz's comments to reporters Tuesday, his first full day back in the Senate. 

Last week, Ted Cruz made one of the biggest decisions of his political career: To essentially hand the 2016 Republican nomination to his rival, Donald Trump.

This week, the Texas senator returns to his day job on Capitol Hill facing a decision that carries perhaps just as much weight: whether to continue being an obstructor to official Washington or to try to work within official Washington.

What tack Cruz decides to take could shape his political future. There are political benefits to Cruz if he doubles down on the brand that Washington loves to hate, and there are plenty of benefits to him if he makes friends in this town after the failure of a presidential campaign without them.

Cruz's reputation, after all, is what brought him to the dance. But his lack of likability wound up hurting him toward the end.

On Tuesday, his first full day back in the Senate, he gave no indication to reporters he was drastically changing his strategy. "I look forward to pressing in the Senate the very same things I was pressing for on the campaign trail," he said.
