Ted Cruz is fed up with the bias at Twitter, specifically in the unjust locking of Team Mitch’s account that we reported on yesterday.
Cruz just tweeted that his campaign is siding with the NRSC and not spending a dime on Twitter advertising until they unlock Team Mitch’s account:

Trump’s campaign has also vowed not to spend a dime on Twitter advertising as well.
Here’s more from the report that Cruz cited:
President Donald Trump’s campaign and the major, national Republican campaign committees announced Thursday they will stop spending money to advertise on Twitter after the social media platform locked Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s account for posting a video of violent threats against him.
“Twitter’s hostile actions toward Leader McConnell’s campaign are outrageous, and we will not tolerate it,” said Jesse Hunt, a spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee. “The NRSC will suspend all spending with Twitter until further notice. We will not spend our resources on a platform that silences conservatives.”
Richard Walters, the chief of staff of the Republican National Committee, said in a tweet that the RNC and the Trump campaign will also not advertise on Twitter “until they address this disgusting bias.” Parker Poling, the executive director of the National Republican Congressional Committee, also said the House campaign arm would follow suit in a tweet of her own.
Meanwhile, Senate Leadership Fund president and CEO Steven Law told POLITICO the top pro-GOP super PAC for Senate races would pull its spending on Twitter due to the company’s “unfair treatment” of McConnell.
Wow. This is fantastic!
Just to sum up, Ted Cruz’s campaign, Trump’s campaign, the NRSC, the NRCC, the Senate Leadership Fund, and the the RNC are all teaming up to hit Twitter right where it hurts, in the wallet, over this despicable bias. And I wouldn’t be surprised if more Republican campaigns and sign on to this boycott.
