The Cruz challenge for establishment Republicans--No more excuses

Politico:
As Cruz gains, GOP senators rally for Rubio

The idea of Cruz as the nominee makes fellow GOP senators shudder.
What the article leaves out is that a Cruz Presidency would leave them without excuses for not passing the agenda they run on at election time.   That is what they find really scary.  Marco Rubio looks like a safer choice for them because he is more amenable to the kind of deals they like.

What the Cruz, Carson and Trump candidacy represents to them is a rejection of the politics of usual they are most comfortable with.  While they are making noise about elect ability, the polls show that Cruz is beating Hillary like every other major GOP candidate.  The big difference between Cruz and Rubio their inability to force him to compromise his principles.

I will support the nominee and I suspect that when the voters make their choice the members of Congress will too.
