Thiel on Cruz
"Well, I think he's very smart," Thiel said of Cruz, who is now the junior senator from Texas. "I think one of the challenges we have in the Republican Party is ... our representatives, our senators, are somewhat lower IQ than the people on the other side. So I think there is something to be said for getting some really smart people in there."
Some of Cruz's opponents in the 2012 primary tried to start a whisper campaign about Thiel's support. That failed.
