Newly elected Texas Senator Ted Cruz appeared on Meet The Press on Sunday with David Gregory and New York Senator Chuck Schumer to talk gun control, the debt ceiling, Chuck Hagel, and Colin Powell’s latest charges of Republican intolerance and bigotry.

Up against one of the most formidable Democrat interlocutors in the United States Senate, the freshman Tea Party Senator more than held his own, performing as a seasoned veteran.

If this interview is any indication of Cruz’ future performance in the Senate, it appears Conservatives will have an able spokesman on the national stage for the foreseeable future.
