Ted Cruz confronted by Brett Kavanaugh protesters at D.C. restaurant

Video posted on social media shows the group confronting Cruz and his wife inside Fiola, an upscale Italian restaurant on Pennsylvania Avenue.

"Cruz has been friends with creep Kavanaugh for 20 years", they added.

Sen. Ted Cruz was forced to leave a Washington restaurant Monday after left-wing activists swarmed the senator, heckling him with chants and demanding to know his position on embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Cruz is locked in a surprisingly tight race for re-election with Democrat Beto O'Rourke.

"God bless you, ma'am", Cruz responds. "And do you believe survivors, sir?"

"God bless you too", a heckler shouted back.


In the second video, Cruz is seen making his way past protesters, one of which appears to get in Cruz's way, prompting the lawmaker to signal him to get out of his way.

Kavanaugh's accuser has agreed to testify against him before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Cruz, like the majority of Republican lawmakers, has supported Kavanaugh's nomination. "Now Cruz is on judiciary committee hearing his testimony".

"The allegations. are serious, and they deserve to be treated with respect", Cruz said during a debate with O'Rourke on Friday. Kavanaugh's prospects came under withering attack over the past 10 days, after California professor Christine Blasey Ford accused him of sexually assaulting her when both were Washington suburban teenagers.

And as soon as they left the restaurant, the protestors cheered, but were immediately told to leave by the establishment.

She continued to press. "I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so".
