On Tuesday, Ted Cruz-endorsed Congressman Tim Huelskamp was defeated by challenger Roger Marshall in the primary race for Kansas’s first district, becoming one of the first sitting Tea Party representatives to lose to an establishment-backed Republican. Before that happened, though, Huelskamp told everyone to scram.
Campaign volunteer Steven Howe told members of the media that it is a private party, and that campaign staff will let reporters know when the congressman will be available.
Howe says it is “out of respect for the congressman until we know more.”
