Rep. Peter King: Moderate Republicans 'have to be willing to say no'

Rep. Peter King, R-New York, told CNN’s Jake Tapper that moderate Republicans in Congress need speak out more in future fights over legislation and that his caucus can’t allow “30 to 35 Ted Cruz Republicans dominate the House.”

King also detailed a bizarre moment on the House floor during the vote to pass the bill to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling.
