‘Red Tsunami’: Ted Cruz Stumps in Seminole to Supercharge Florida Republicans

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz rallied support Friday night for two Central Florida congressional candidates, predicting a “red tsunami” sweeping across Florida and the nation on Election Day.

The Republican Texas senator stumped for  Cory Mills and Scotty Moore at the Horsepower Ranch in Geneva. Geneva is in Florida’s recently redrawn 7th Congressional District, with early votes being cast in the Nov. 8 election.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Cruz Stuck to the GOP’s guns in terms of messaging, bashing Biden and quipping that he “wanders off stage until the Easter Bunny leads him back.”

Cruz also took shots at the President’s son and inflation.

“Inflation is so high Hunter Biden can’t afford crack cocaine.”

When the poor performance Cruz described is compared to his praise of DeSantis, who he said was “doing a hell of a job here in Florida,” it’s clear to see why Cruz is so optimistic.

“We’re not just going to see a red wave.We are going to see a red tsunami.”

Cory Mills, an army veteran, is favored to flip District 7, beating out the vice chair of the Florida Democratic party Karen Green, due to incumbent democrat and U.S. representative Stephanie Murphy deciding not to run.

Mills is a staunch conservative who supports winding down aid to Ukraine and charging book publishers who create pornographic materials with the intent to distribute them to children with felonies. He would also have these publishers register as sex offenders. Predictably, Mills backs DeSantis’s education policies and argues the measures should be expanded to the twelfth grade, as it’s not the public school’s place to discuss sex with students at any age.

“I am one of those guys that don’t give a damn if they call me a xenophobe or they tell me because of my skin color I have some type of privilege.”

Moore, on the other hand, an ex-missionary, is a long-shot candidate facing down incumbent Democratic U.S. Rep. Darren Soto in the Osceola County-area 9th Congressional District that heavily favors Democrats. Both candidates have generally preferred the Trump-style republican policy platform.

This is just one stop on Cruz’s 17-state, cross-country bus tour in support of about two dozen Republican candidates for governor, Senate, and House, aimed at ensuring the success of the coming “red tsunami.”
