Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) offered his assessment of Hillary Clinton’s stunning defeat, calling it the “revenge of flyover country,” CNN reports.
Cruz said the election “was an incredible vindication for the American people across this country, and especially those that you know in rural America, in what elites on both coasts consider to be flyover country.”
He added: “I think the Clinton campaign found themselves utterly flabbergasted. They had not even contemplated the possibility that they might not prevail. And that, I think, is the direct result of not listening to and not hearing the American people.”
