Cruz at CPAC: ‘Harry Reid, Thank You for Attorney General Jeff Sessions’
CRUZ: "And by the way, I'll do this again many times. Since January 20th I've raised the glass and toasted Harry Reid. Because Harry Reid employed the so-called 'nuclear option,' broke the Senate rules to change the Senate rules, lowered the threshold for confirmation from 60 votes to 51 votes and it is a direct result of Harry Reid that we now have the most conservative cabinet in decades.
So, if I can be a little presumptuous, Mark, let me on behalf of CPAC thank Harry Reid. Harry Reid, thank you for Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
And also, we should be thanking Harry Reid for EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, for Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, and very, very soon I look forward to thanking Harry Reid for Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch."
