Conservatives have spent months railing against the Biden administration’s progressive agenda, and one prominent Republican is predicting that his party is poised to bring it to an end.
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) addressed the crowd at this week’s annual Faith and Freedom Coalition conference in Florida, where he expressed confidence that the GOP would not only reclaim a majority on Capitol Hill next year, but also ensure President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are removed from office in 2024.
“Revival is coming”
In fact, Cruz asserted that he was “encouraged” by the “extreme” and “radical” proposals being advanced by Democrats in D.C.
Making it clear that he opposed such ideas, the senator said that “there is a natural pendulum to politics, and the further and further and further crazy left they go, the more the American people are going to bring us back and pull this country back from the edge of the cliff.”
Referencing the last major conservative revolution, Cruz said that “it took Jimmy Carter to give us Ronald Reagan” and projected a similar reaction to the current administration.
“Joe Biden is Jimmy Carter 2.0, and I’m here to tell you that revival is coming,” he said.

“A one-way ticket”
In next year’s midterm election, Cruz said that Republicans will “retire [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi and [Senate Democratic Leader] Chuck Schumer,” adding that “we’re going to win in 2024 and send Joe Biden and Kamala Harris a one-way ticket down, finally, to our southern border.”
In addition to Cruz, the recent event featured a number of prominent Republicans, including potential contenders for the GOP presidential nomination.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis provided the keynote address and other top speakers included former Vice President Mike Pence and Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott, both of Florida.
Of course, with President Donald Trump considering another possible White House bid, Faith and Freedom Coalition founder Ralph Reed said he did not see the event as a “cattle call” of likely GOP presidential hopefuls.
Instead, he said that the group was more focused on reclaiming control of the House and Senate in the upcoming midterm elections.
