Texas Senator Ted Cruz stated Monday that the “overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats.”
Speaking to the recent shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic during an appearance on “The Hugh Hewitt Show,” the presidential candidate accused the Democrat party of being “soft on crime” within its ranks.
“Here is the simple and undeniable fact – the overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats,” he said. “There is a reason why for years the Democrats have been viewed as soft on crime. They go in and appoint to the bench judges who release violent criminals.”
“They go in and fight to give the right to vote to convicted felons. Why?”
