John Boehner Has Not Spoken To Ted Cruz ‘Since He’s Been Elected’

Al Weaver Reporter

In a recent interview, House Speaker John Boehner said he has not spoken to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz “since he’s been elected.”

According to the Speaker’s interview with the Cincinnati Enquirer:

“On Cruz, who has given Boehner heartburn by encouraging House conservatives to block moderate proposals floated by Boehner’s team: ‘I’ve not talked to him since he’s been elected’ to the Senate in 2012.”

Meanwhile, Boehner does not give the same treatment to all GOP Senators. He gets along quite well with other GOP senators, specifically Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“(McConnell) and I could not be closer,” Boehner said. “We understand each other very well.”

Boehner recently returned to his district after an extended 10 day trip, raising money and campaigning for House Republicans ahead of the midterm elections in less than five weeks.
