The Toronto Star’s Daniel Dale has been keeping an eye on the GOP presidential candidates (and maybe the Democrat candidates as well) and notes that Sen. Ted Cruz is the first and only Republican candidate so far to tweet about the Colorado Springs shooting. As Twitchy reported earlier today, Bernie Sanders issued a tweet that backfired when he described the rhetoric that led to the shooting as “unintentional.”

Cruz chose to stick with prayers for those killed and injured in the attack.

Considering how little we know about the accused shooter and his motives. that’s probably not a bad idea.

“Prayers” went over about as well as Sanders’ “unintended consequences.”
