Cruz speaks with reporters after the weekly party caucus luncheons at the U.S. Capitol in WashingtonBy David Morgan and Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz ripped into his party’s establishment on Friday, calling Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell a liar during an unusual public attack on the floor of the Senate. Amid intense maneuvering over an ambitious $340 billion transportation bill, Cruz railed that McConnell and the Senate’s new Republican majority were serving the interests of big money lobbyists and corporations, because of a move to offer an amendment to reauthorize the U.S. Export-Import Bank. Cruz, a fiery first-term Senator who helped shut down the federal government in 2013, is among 16 presidential candidates vying for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.
