'Most conservatives want somebody in Washington who is willing to sort of disrupt the old order'
HAYES: "What is funny about the scrutiny though [of Ted Cruz] is how over the top harsh it is. These New York Times articles, it's not really worth talking about Chris Matthews, but, you know, there has been a systemic effort I think to go after Ted Cruz, to marginalize him, to make him look crazy. And here's the thing that I think most conservatives see when they look at Ted Cruz -- they want somebody in Washington who is willing to sort of disrupt the old order. The problem with Washington is the way that it's operated for so many times. So if you have a senator who comes in and challenges some of these conventions, I think most conservatives, myself included, we think that's a good thing.
