GOP Senator Backs Sanders Over Cruz

We all know that the Republican establishment hates conservatives, but rarely do these Beltway elites admit it like Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) did yesterday.

According to the Associated Press, Senator Burr told folks at a private fundraiser that he would vote for Bernie Sanders (D-VT) for president before he would vote for Ted Cruz (R-TX).

Senator Burr denied the report, but the AP has a source who was in the room and is standing by its story. The source said Burr “did not appear to be joking.”

And this isn’t really a surprise. Last year, Burr absurdly instructed his staff to investigate whether Cruz had leaked classified information during a debate in Las Vegas. Burr tried to walk that back too.

So it seems that Senator Burr hates Ted Cruz so much for actually fighting for conservative principles in the Senate that he would prefer to elect a self-described “socialist” as President of the United States.

It’s truly outrageous.

Senator Burr has lost his way. If this wasn’t clear before, it is now.

Please make a quick phone call to one of Senator Burr’s offices below and let him know what you think.

  • Washington, DC – (202) 224-3154
  • Asheville, NC – (828) 350-2437
  • Gastonia, NC – (704) 833-0854
  • Winston-Salem, NC – (336) 631-5125
  • Wilmington, NC – (910) 251-1058
  • Rocky Mount, NC – (252) 977-9522

Tell him that if he supports a liberal socialist for president over a proven conservative, then he shouldn’t be surprised if Republican voters don’t support him in his election.

If his office denies the report, ask them why he constantly votes with the Democrats on things like the omnibus bill and has a liberal “F” grade from Conservative Review.

Senators like Richard Burr are the reason why so many Americans are fed up with Republicans in Washington, and they need to be replaced with conservatives who believe in our principles.

Thank you for standing strong for freedom and holding our elected representatives accountable.
