Sen. Ted Cruz appeared to distance himself again from fellow GOP Sen. Rand Paul, this time over social values.
The first-term Republican senator from Texas, who was in Iowa Tuesday, was asked by the Des Moines Register about Paul’s recent comments that Republicans should “agree to disagree” about social issues.
Cruz seemed to disagree, saying, “I think that we should continue to defend our shared values.”
“There are some who say the Republican party should no longer stand for life. I don’t agree with that,” he also said. “There are some who say the Republican party should no longer stand for traditional marriage. I don’t agree with them, either.”
Paul, who’s considered more libertarian-leaning than Cruz, said in an interview that Republicans will have to draw an internal ceasefire over social issues in order to expand.
