After 40 hours in the air with Sen. Ted Cruz, Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., concluded that he is a "friendly" person but she was "disappointed" that he wasn't swayed by her arguments about Obamacare.

"We had very good conversations about his family and his kids, my kids, and he's a pleasant person; I can see why people might have voted for him," Moore said on CSPAN's Washington Journal on Friday morning.

Moore and Cruz had "very candid" conversations about Obamacare, school choice, and other policy issues. "And we had many other members on the trip join in on those discussions," she said. "They were very candid, very blunt."

"I was disappointed a little bit with just how — as one of my colleagues observed during the discussion — no matter how much sense you make, when people have their ideological stance, they aren't going to be persuaded by any facts you present to them," Moore also said.
