Better late than never: Yesterday, the editors of the Houston Chronicle's opinion page expressed regret at endorsing Ted Cruz last fall, writing that Cruz “has been part of the problem in specific situations where [his predecessor, Kay Bailey] Hutchison would have been part of the solution.”
One reason we particularly believe that Hutchison would make a difference in these hectic days is that if she had kept her seat, Cruz would not be in the Senate.
When we endorsed Ted Cruz in last November's general election, we did so with many reservations and at least one specific recommendation - that he follow Hutchison's example in his conduct as a senator.
Obviously, he has not done so. Cruz has been part of the problem in specific situations where Hutchison would have been part of the solution.
But we'll never know.
