Government shutdown standoff leads to Republican infighting

Washington – Controversy surrounding the government shutdown has led to infighting in the Republican Party. As reported by ABC News, some of the more conservative members of the group have suggested that the compromise reached between Senate Democrats and Senate Republicans to re-open the government was surrendering to the other side.

Sen. Ted Cruz, who is viewed as being a main proponent in a strategy to defund Obamacare, is quoted as stating of the deal, “I will say that the reason this deal, the lousy deal, was reached last night is because, unfortunately, Senate Republicans made the choice not to support House Republicans.

“I wish Senate Republicans had united, I tried to do everything I could to urge Senate Republicans to come together and stand with House Republicans.”

Some say the infighting is likely to hurt the political future of some in the Republican Party. Brian Walsh, a GOP strategist and former communications director at the National Republican Senatorial Committee, is quoted in the report as stating, “Senate Republicans have effectively given away five seats the last two cycles because of bad general election nominees, most of which were aided by these groups… These groups are successful at two things — raising money for themselves and electing Democrats.”
