Former GOP MP Will Hurd hints that he might get Ted Cruz into elementary college in 2024
Will Hurd should have been a rising star in the GOP. He was one of the few minority Republicans in the House of Representatives and had an impressive background as a former CIA agent.
But unlike many of his Republicans, Hurd was ready to stand up to Donald Trump. He voted against Trump’s 2019 shutdown and also voted to condemn the former president for comments he made on “The Squad”.
Hurd has chosen not to run for re-election in 2020, but that doesn’t mean he’s done with politics. In fact, he recently hinted that he could get Ted Cruz into elementary school in 2024.
The former lawmaker made the comments during an interview with The Atlantic. He was first asked about aspiring Republican star Elise Stefanik.
Hurd replied: “[Successful government] requires two strong parties. And despite what you see on cable news and social media, people want us to be able to disagree without being uncomfortable. We will be more successful in enabling our country to further elevate humanity for the next 250 years if we focus on the things that bind us together. “
The former congressman was then asked if he would consider running against Cruz in 2024. “If there is an opportunity to serve my country, I will evaluate it, ”he said. “But right now I’m focusing on the different aspects of my life. I deal with technology, national security, and public order. “
While Cruz appears vulnerable in 2024, he has weathered significant challenges before that. It’s hard to believe anyone can get him out until it actually happens.
