Harry Reid said he has “some degree of respect” for Ted Cruz.
“Ted Cruz, I don’t like a lot of the things that he stands for, in fact most everything he stands for. But I have some degree of respect for him because he believes in something,” Reid said in a radio interview. “He has a set of values. I don’t agree with his values, but he speaks what he believes are the right things for the country.”
“And I appreciate someone that does that. I think he’s really hurt the country with being the person that closed the federal government for 17 days, but at least he set out doing what he said he would do,” he added.
