Ted Cruz Says Midterms Will Be ‘Red Tsunami’, Democrats Can Only Focus on Abortion

“I think we are going to see a wave election,” Cruz told Fox News on Oct. 6. “I think it’s going to be a tsunami.”
“Republicans are going to retake both the House and Senate,” he continued. “I think in the House, we could easily end up with a majority of 30, 40, 50 votes. In the Senate, I think we are going to retake the majority. I think we will end up with about 53 Republicans in the Senate.”
Cruz, who was in Arizona as part of a multi-state campaign bus tour, pointed to the Republican’s advantage with record-high inflation and gas prices.
“People are energized,” Cruz said. “They are [expletive] at the idiots in Washington at the direction of the country. They are mad at inflation. They are mad at gas prices. They are mad at crime and chaos at our southern border and furious at the cultural Marxists trying to destroy our country. That’s why I think it’s going to be a fundamental wave election this year.”
Democrats’ Only Talking Points Is Abortion
As for the Democrats’ campaign on abortion after Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in July, the lawmaker said there was no other issue the party could focus on.
“What would you talk about? You couldn’t talk about the economy because the economy has gone to [expletive] under Biden. You couldn’t talk about inflation because the price of everything is up. Gas is more than twice as high. Mortgages are three times as high. You couldn’t talk about crime because we’ve got murder rates skyrocketing across the country,” Cruz said.
“You certainly couldn’t talk about illegal immigration,” he continued. “If you try to talk foreign policy, Biden’s surrender to the Taliban is a loser.”
“So they’re left with abortion, and they’re trying to make it all about abortion. And the crazy thing about it is, the Supreme Court has returned that issue to the voters. So now, every state will decide the abortion laws in their states. The laws will reflect the values of their citizens. It’s democracy.”
Cruz suggested the multiple issues plaguing the Biden administration would make November’s midterm like the election in 2010 when the GOP won 63 Houses seats and gained control of the chamber.
“It is a fundamental change election, and I couldn’t be more excited about it,” he said. The remarks came hours after Cruz finished a rally in Arizona’s Queen Creek for GOP gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake and Senate candidate Blake Masters.

Cruz has repeatedly expressed his confidence that the GOP will flip enough seats to regain control of both chambers.
“We are heading towards not just a red wave but a tsunami in November,” Cruz said in a June interview on The Dan O’Donnell Show.
