Sen. Ted Cruz, who recently started showing a little bit of life in the polls following the Republican candidates for the 2016 presidential nomination, recently told WABC’s Rita Cosby that Donald Trump won’t be his party’s nominee for prez.
“I think that’s right. I think in time I don’t believe Donald is going to be the nominee and I think in time the lion’s share of his supporters end up with us,” the freshman senator predicted. “And I think the reason is what I was just saying, that if you look to the records of all the Republican candidates there’s a big difference between my record and that of everyone else if you ask, who has stood up to Washington?
“And I’ll note, you know I think the most beneficial thing Donald Trump’s involvement in the race has been, I think his involvement has been tremendously helpful to my campaign, because it’s framed the central question of this primary. As who will stand up to Washington? And if that’s the central question, the natural next question, that any voter will ask is okay, well who actually has stood up to Washington? Who has a record in that regard?” he asked.
I think it’s sweet that Cruz appreciates Trump’s “involvement” in the campaign.
Recent history has shown that making such statements places you in The Donald’s crosshairs.
Will Trump slap back at Cruz now?
