There is an interesting detail missing from this story.
From USA Today:
Ted Cruz and company are playing the expectations game in New York — including the taunt that front-running businessman Donald Trump should withdraw from the Republican race if he can't crack 50% in his home state.
“If he doesn’t get over 50%, he should probably consider dropping out, like everyone else has when they don’t win their home state in a dramatic fashion,” Cruz campaign manager Jeff Roe told ABC News’ “Powerhouse Politics” podcast, presumably referring to Marco Rubio in Florida.
Roe quickly added that he doesn't expect Trump to follow his advice.Interestingly enough, the story failed to mention that Cruz did not crack 44% in Texas. Trump got 26%.
Kasich failed to top 47% in Ohio. Trump got 36%.
The story failed to mention that.
I laugh. A sitting senator with the support of the governor failed to crack 50%, and now his campaign demands that Trump do that in New York?
This race is over and has been over, but to hang on to power, the Republican insiders want to toxify Trump to make victory impossible in November so they can hang on to power.
It won't work.
This election is a great awakening. I am seeing how the Party of Reagan became the Party of Ruin.
