Cruz likes the thought of Clinton in prison

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz likes the thought of Hillary Rodham Clinton behind bars.

That’s what the Texas senator suggested Monday when one of his supporters at a rally in Elko, Nevada, shouted that he should “put Hillary in jail” if he’s elected in November.

Cruz paused, then responded, “With any luck, she’ll be there already.”

The capacity crowd cheered at the suggestion that the former secretary of state who’s been dogged by questions about her private email use at the State Department should be locked up.

Cruz later added, “I am told the Democrats are opening up a new polling place at Leavenworth,” a reference to the federal prison in Kansas.
