In the interview, Cheney called the Tea Party a positive force in the Republican Party. He said it is a normal reaction to Washington dysfunction.
Cheney brought up his daughter’s campaign when asked about his feelings on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), whom he described as representative of a large portion of people.
“I think he represents the thinking of an awful lot of people, obviously in Texas,” he said. “My own daughter is running for the U.S. Senate in Wyoming, partly motivated by the concern that Washington is not working, that the system is breaking down and it's time for new leadership.”
