Both men have became must-follows for conservatives online and, since Woods made his big return to Twitter a few weeks ago, the two conservatives have been drawing attention at times to each other’s posts.
With socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) increasingly looking like the prohibitive favorite to take the Democratic nomination, Woods and Cruz have weighed in recently on Sanders and what his rise means about the direction of the Democratic Party, and the two conservative voices have found a lot of common ground.
In response to former Democratic candidate Andrew Yang telling CNN, as Sanders was cruising to victory in Nevada over the weekend, that the Democratic Party is no longer the party of the working class, Cruz agreed and expanded on Yang’s premise.
“Yang is right: This is the most fundamental political shift of the past decade,” Cruz tweeted. “The Democratic Party has abandoned the working class, has abandoned union members, and the GOP has become the blue-collar party of jobs.”
