( - Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) says Democrats offered clues about how they'll govern on the first night of their virtual national convention:

"I think what we saw tonight was the beginning of the collapse of Joe Biden's basement strategy. Joe Biden has been hiding in his basement since he won the nomination, but tonight was Bernie Sanders's night," Cruz told Fox News's Laura Ingraham.

Tonight -- so John Kasich is promising voters, don't pay attention to all the craziness on the Democratic side. Joe isn't that crazy. Well, you know who didn't believe John Kasich? Bernie Sanders didn't believe John Kasich, because Bernie Sanders stood up there and said our radical socialist agenda has won. We've taken over the Democratic Party, and Joe Biden is ours.

And that really underscores the stakes of this election. If the Democrats win, you are looking at Bernie in ascension, you're looking at AOC, you're looking at, mark my words, Elizabeth Warren as treasury secretary. Bernie might be secretary of state. These are radicals, and that's where the Democratic Party is. And I don't think that's where the American people are.

As reported, Sen. Sanders told the convention Monday night that his campaign had "moved this country in a bold new direction," adding that that many ideas considered radical just a few years have become mainstream.

“Our campaign ended several months ago, but our movement continues and is getting stronger every day,” he said. “Many of the ideas we fought for, that just a few years ago were considered ‘radical,’ are now mainstream.”

In an attempt at "unity" after Biden won the primaries, staffers for Sanders and Biden produced joint policy recommendations in six areas. If Joe Biden implements the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force recommendations, "Joe Biden will become the most progressive president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and that, at this moment, is what we need," Sen. Bernie Sanders told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

Sen. Cruz told Ingraham:

The Democrats today are the party of the rich. They're the party of coastal elites, they're the party of Manhattan and San Francisco. Kamala Harris was a bold move to lock down the vote in San Francisco, and that's who they're trying to appeal to is the radical left...The Democrats have said, we care more about the woke mob than we do about standing with cops or firefighters or working men and women.

And to go tonight without saying a meaningful word about the riots, about the police officers being murdered, it's an example of how the Democratic Party, they are getting more and more extreme. And it's all because they hate Donald Trump. That's what they stand for is radical leftism and hating Trump. I don't think that's a majority vision in America.
