Now, after losing two more primaries, Cruz is back welshing on the deal., He vowed this weekend to try to steal more delegates that Donald Trump won fair and square.
Ted Cruz isn’t giving up.
While Donald Trump dispatches three advisers to Texas’s convention in Dallas this week and makes a pitch for party unity, his team will be running up against a Cruz operation that is still maneuvering to stuff the state’s delegation with allies the senator could call on to snub the presumptive nominee.
“We have a busy weekend planned,” said a source familiar with the Cruz campaign’s plans.
Cruz is scheduled to deliver an address at the Texas convention after a week of hinting he could jump back into the presidential contest and urging activists to thwart the New Yorker’s takeover of the GOP’s policy platform. And despite dropping out of the race more than a week ago, the vanquished presidential contender has deployed at least one paid adviser to the Texas Republican convention – Tyler Norris, his state director. (Trump has three advisers: state director Joshua Jones, deputy director Eric Mahroum and Houston-area director Kayla Hensley.)
It’s not just Texas where Cruz is still playing.
The senator’s team remains active in several of the other eight state conventions selecting delegates this week – from Nebraska to Oklahoma to Nevada. Those conventions, along with party meetings in Arkansas, Florida and Wisconsin, will be selecting 389 national delegates, nearly a sixth of the entire convention.Senator Cruz is a despicable man whom the National Enquirer reported is a serial cheater on his wife, which is why she ordered him to fire his female staffers.
Cruz is a Washington insider who has spent most of his adult life in Washington sucking up to the power brokers. Elected to the Senate, senators sized him up and passed on working with the sneak.
He is one of those fellows who tells Christian conservatives what they want to hear as he thumps the Bible and praises the Constitution, but whom I never quite believe it. Bobby Byrd was the same way and we saw what a phony he was. To be sure, Byrd never stole, never did it for financial gain, and likely never cheated on his wife. But I never trusted Byrd. I praised him on the good he did. But he was not my cup of tea.
The party should tell Cruz in no uncertain terms that their are consequences to such actions.
