If Sen. Ted Cruz goes to the convention and tries to or does steal the nomination from Donald Trump, the Republican Party will pay dearly for allowing him to do it. Cruz is not the man he sells himself to be.
Did anyone notice how Ted never keeps his word? First, it was candidates with no path to GOP threshold of acquiring 1,237 delegates should quit for the health of the party and the nation, but then that applies to everyone but him? This past weekend, Cruz said Indiana is a must win and now today during a Fox Sunday morning interview with Chris Wallace, it’s not the firewall to get him to stop.
Earth to Cruz, someone reaches out to him and let him know it’s over for him.
From The Hill:
Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz said on Sunday he would continue his campaign if he lost the critical Indiana primary on Tuesday.
“If you don’t win in Indiana under these circumstances, is this race over?” asked “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace.
“Of course not,” Cruz said. “It’s going to be a battle to see who can earn a majority of the delegates elected by the people at the convention. And the reason Donald is so frantic to say the race is over … is because Donald knows he cannot earn a majority of the delegates that were elected by the people.
“I agree that Indiana is incredibly important,” Cruz added.
Cruz in the days leading up to the primary has announced former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina as his running mate and gained the endorsement of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R).
Do you see this? There is no comparison as to who has lit the fuse under the American voters’ seat. This is shameful in so many ways. Cruz continues to hold on to what, I don’t know.
I have a secret for anyone who wants to listen. Trump doesn’t need to win Indiana to get to the magic number, even a decent showing that he is almost guaranteed to get will give him enough delegates to close the deal in California since most of Pennsylvania’s unbound are in Trumps corner but not included in the current delegate counts.
When I look at both Cruz and Fiorina, the question would have to be in what world does either one have experience running anything successfully? Cruz was successful in shutting down the government at a cost of $26 billion and Carly ran down a giant tech company and was fired for her work, not sure this counts.
What do you think? Should Ted stay in after Indiana if he is defeated? Share your comments below and let us know what you think.
