Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has set a litmus test for Republicans: a pledge to take no corporate PAC donations.
“Starting today, I no longer accept money from any corporate PAC. I urge my GOP colleagues at all levels to do the same,” Cruz penned in an op-ed Wednesday in the Wall Street Journal.
“For too long, Republicans have allowed the left and their big business allies to attack our values with no response. We’ve allowed them to ship jobs overseas, attack gun rights, and destroy our energy companies. We’ve let them smear Republicans without paying any price,” Cruz continued.
Cruz then reiterated his point by echoing the great basketball player Michael Jordan.
“As America’s greatest basketball player observed years ago, Republicans buy sneakers, too. We cast votes, too. And we pay attention when CEOs come after our own just so they can look good for a few editorial pages and radical activists,” he wrote.
