What happened to Scott Walker? The Washington Post
Ted Cruz refrains from publicly attacking his GOP rivals in the presidential race, most notably Donald Trump, invoking the 11th commandment to not speak ill of other Republicans. His father Rafael, an ordained minister who keeps an aggressive travel schedule speaking to conservative groups, apparently does not feel quite the same way. And it was Rafael who spoke to the National Federation of Republican Assemblies Sunday, the morning after their convention voted to recommend its members support Ted’s campaign. (Harry Reid’s 2010 challenger, Sharron Angle, is the organization’s president). In a 45-minute talk, the 76-year-old criticized his son’s leading rivals for inconsistencies on immigration, abortion and education. He decried the Supreme Court for “calling homosexuality a civil right,” accused the Republican Party of “relegating God to the basement” for the sake of “inclusion,” and defended Ted against questions from conservative birthers.
