Ted Cruz and Mike Lee Launch Joint Fundraising Effort

Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, two tea-party allies who were at the center of last fall's government shutdown, are teaming up to raise money together through a new joint fundraising account.

They created the Lee Cruz Victory Committee last week. Its proceeds will be divided between the Texas and Utah Republicans' reelection accounts.

Lee and Cruz first met at a 2010 meeting of the Federalist Society in Washington, and Lee was among Cruz's earliest endorsers. "Using standard political metrics, Mike was crazy to support me at that point," Cruz said last year. Since his arrival in the Senate, they've become fast friends and allies as among the most hard-line conservatives in the Senate.

 

Last week, they made some waves when they posed together with a tiger pelt. Cruz had travelled to a conservative conference in Utah, where both senators gives speeches attacking the federal health care law. (Twitter/@SenTedCruz)
