DALLAS — Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said in his remarks to a conservative conference in his home state that Republicans spend too much time preaching to the choir, all while he delivered a red-meat address to the attendees.

In remarks at CPAC in Dallas, Cruz said that longtime Democratic strongholds in South Texas are turning red, and Republicans should make their case there.

“As Republicans, we spend too much time preaching to the choir,” the Texas Republican said. “We spend too much time talking to the same 2.6 million people watching Fox News. And God loves the choir. The choir needs preaching to. But we also need to be talking to young people with Hispanics and African Americans and suburban moms about the blessings of liberty.”

Republicans are seeking to capitalize on their recent gains in the border region, including a special election victory by conservative activist Rep. Mayra Flores (R-TX) in an open Rio Grande Valley House district.

Cruz’s speech also featured a number of jokes at the expense of his Democratic congressional colleagues, including a line about how inflation is so bad that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) can’t afford handcuffs, a reference to her arrest at a pro-abortion rights protest outside the Supreme Court in which she was photographed holding her arms behind her back as if she were handcuffed before raising her fist in acknowledgment of other protesters.

Cruz said he thinks the Republicans will win congressional majorities in “not just a red wave, but a tsunami,” driving out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). He also took a jab at President Joe Biden, saying Republicans would simply tell him that it is 2025 and that he would go back to Delaware.

Chelsea star Marc Cucurella insists he WON’T get his curly hair cut despite having it pulled by Tottenham rival Romero

MARC CUCURELLA has vowed not to cut his flowing locks despite having his hair sneakily pulled by Cristian Romero in the Battle of the Bridge II.

Chelsea’s new £62million defender - who last had his curls tugged in an Under-12s match - insists the Tottenham star should have been sent off for the schoolboy foul in Sunday’s explosive 2-2 draw.

Cucurella admitted it hurt as Romero’s hair-pull hauled him to the ground at a corner, but when asked if he will now chop his famous barnet, he replied: “No. Never. This is my style.

“It’s strange, I remember only one other time I had a player do that.

“I was very young, I was in the academy Under-12s, but I never had another episode of this since.”

Neither ref Anthony Taylor nor VAR Mike Dean took any action and moments later, Harry Kane headed Spurs’ second equaliser six minutes into injury time to grab a Stamford Bridge draw.

Furious Blues boss Thomas Tuchel blasted the officials, raging: “Since when has it been permitted to pull an opponent’s hair?”

And Cucurella, 24, added: “The referee in the stadium said they were checking a red card and for me, it’s very clear.

“The video is very clear.

“I don’t know what happened with the referee. It’s the same: you kick my leg, you pull my hair. But the referee didn’t understand.

“This is football and in this game, it was an error. But in another game, the referee takes a good decision.

“This one is a referee or VAR error.”

But Cucurella says he bears no grudge to his 27-year-old Argentinian rival over the foul.

The former Brighton star said: “It was a fight on the pitch. I spoke with him before the game and I have no problem with him.

“It was only an action in the game, but an important action as it maybe changed the final result.”

Tuchel and Spurs boss Antonio Conte were both sent off after two furious touchline bust-ups, while Tuchel is also facing an FA charge after accusing Taylor of being bias against Chelsea and insisting he should never again be in charge of a Blues match.

It was reminiscent of the original explosive Battle of the Bridge six years ago which ended Spurs’ title hopes.

Cucurella added: “It was a derby and all derbies are difficult and have a good atmosphere.

“But the team played really well.”

Cucurella also revealed that news of Chelsea captain and fellow Spaniard Cesar Azpilicueta staying on was a huge factor in persuading him to join from the Seagulls.

He said: “I’m very happy with this because Azpilicueta is a legend here.

“The gaffer compared me with him which is very good for me.

“I have a good responsibility to work hard and he helped me a lot with housing, schools, kids.

“It’s very good the captain is Spanish, I’m happy.”
