Peter King: “I wish Ted Cruz would stay in the Senate”

I do wish that Ted Cruz would stay in the Senate… Nobody elected him speaker. Nobody elected him majority leader in the House, and it’s really a cheap shot to be coming in from the side. To have some guy come in from the outside like the Pied Piper is wrong.

— Republican Congressman Peter King of New York, making clear that he resents Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s meddling in the House Republican caucus.
