Santorum: Ted Cruz did more harm than good with "defund"

Gregory asked Santorum if he thought Cruz was the new face of the conservative movement.

“There isn’t a leader in the Republican Party right now,” Santorum said. “That’s part of the problem, that’s part of the mess and the confusion. But that’s always the way it is with a party out of power. You have lots of different faces, and those faces, as we’ve seen, they come and they go.”

“He is the face of the Republican Party,” Republican strategist Alex Castellanos said. “He continues to make us the ‘party of no.’ When the house is burning down, you don’t want a critic, you want somebody to actually put out the fire and get this economy going again. To be determined if he grows.”
