Looks like Ted Cruz had so little grass roots support in his 2012 run for the US Senate he needed the "big banks" to bail him out.

Politicians that can't garner enough financial support from those that vote for them should not be elected to public office especially when it comes to  these "by my own boot straps" ranters like Cruz. Needing banks to "finance" your campaign starts out smelling rotten and the stink just gets worse as they go on to get elected.

Reports show that in the critical weeks before the May 2012Republican primary, Mr. Cruz — currently a leading contender for his party’s presidential nomination — put “personal funds” totaling $960,000 into his Senate campaign. Two months later, shortly before a scheduled runoff election, he added more, bringing the total to $1.2 million — “which is all we had saved,” as Mr. Cruz described it in an interview with The New York Times several years ago.
