Jennifer Rubin, a conservative columnist for The Washington Post, appeared on MSNBC on Friday where she pointed out that Beto O’Rourke has a high chance of beating Ted Cruz in the Senate race down in Texas.
Rubin had high praise words for O’Rourke, but not for Cruz.
“He is completely fluid,” Rubin said of O’Rourke. “He talks from the diaphragm up. There are so many politicians who either screech, they turn up way too high because they’re faking emotion or they’re way too reticent and brittle.”
“Where’s Ted Cruz talking from?” host Nicolle Wallace asked. “Is it his nose?”
“Good golly,” Rubin responded with a chuckle, “and then there are people who are just unlikable, that’s the Ted Cruz problem.”
She went on to add that voters need to “like the candidate” in order to elect them — and that “Donald Trump is the exception to the rule.”
