Cruz Sees New Generation Leading Conservatives

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) told a Republican fundraiser "to remain optimistic about the country's future because a new generation of leaders -- 'the children of Reagan' -- have taken over to lead the fight for conservatives," NBC News reports.

Said Cruz: "If you sit back and you list who are the brightest stars in the Republican Party, who are the most effective advocates for free-market principles, you come up with names like Marco Rubio, like Mike Lee, like Rand Paul, like Pat Toomey, like Scott Walker."

He added: "You have to go back to World War II to see such a transformation of the people leading the fight, leading the argument for conservative principles, being an entirely new generation of leaders stepping forward."
