Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “The Lincoln Project co-founder says post-Trump he's going after Cruz”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson said that now that former President TrumpDonald TrumpClinton, Bush, Obama reflect on peaceful transition of power on Biden's Inauguration Day Arizona Republican's brothers say he is 'at least partially to blame' for Capitol violence Biden reverses Trump's freeze on .4 billion in funds MORE is out of office, he intends to turn the super-PAC's attention to Sen.

Wilson told the Texas politics-focused podcast "Y’all-itics" the group would target Cruz over his support of a Republican challenge to the certification of President Biden’s victory earlier this month.

“We all know Ted Cruz is sort of a political force of nature. He is what he is. You either hate him or you hate him,” Wilson said. “And he is a guy who went so far over the edge, not just to appease Donald Trump and Trump’s base, but because he felt like [Sen.] Josh HawleyJoshua (Josh) David HawleySenate confirms Biden's intel chief, giving him first Cabinet official Biden's inauguration marked by conflict of hope and fear The Hill's Morning Report - President Biden, Vice President Harris begin work today MORE (R-Mo.) had gotten out ahead of him on it.”

Hawley, who, like Cruz, is seen as a possible 2024 GOP contender, was the first to announce he would challenge the results of the election. A number of Republicans signed on to the challenge, but some of them dropped their objections after a mob of pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol. Cruz and Hawley continued their challenge.

Wilson called the effort “overtly seditious” and suggested the group would target other participants in the effort as well, saying “for as much as everyone sort of cordially hates Ted Cruz, this also about the fact there is a caucus of these guys right now.”
