Glenn Beck, founder of TheBlaze, joined Bill O’Reilly on Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor to discuss earlier comments made by Beck about leaving the Republican Party.
Last week, Beck spoke about leaving the party due to its inability to stand on principles and failure to stand against Obamacare and immigration.
“I’ve made my decision. I’m out,” he said. “I’m out of the Republican Party. I am not a Republican, I will not give a dime to the Republican Party. I’m out.”

O’Reilly pushed back against the comments, suggesting Beck would vote for Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and therefore not be leaving the Republican Party.
Beck argued that “blind support” for the party should be avoided, speaking to voters who simply vote for the D or R. But while he said that Cruz is his guy for now, he added that he would also support Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Gov. Scott Walker, R-Wis.
“Here’s the thing — don’t vote for parties,” Beck said, with O’Reilly agreeing. “Don’t blindly support the parties. Support the people.”
