In this day of polarized politics, you rarely hear a member of one party criticize a member of the same party, and you seldom hear a compliment thrown towards a candidate from someone who resides in the opposite camp.

Going on to liken Cruz to a carnival barker, King verbally eviscerated the Texas senator. Of course, there's ...
