Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was a subject of conversation and ire at the Republican National Convention. The conservative stalwart refused to endorse Republican nominee Donald Trump during hos remarks, which elicited loud boos from the attendees. It was a disaster. He was reportedly refused entry into the donor suite of Sheldon Adelson, a casino magnate who has given millions to the Republican Party.
Donors have also jumped off the Cruz train, leaving two questions. Why on earth would Cruz address the convention if he had no intention of endorsing Trump, something that the billionaire real estate magnate’s campaign knew beforehand. And is this the end of Cruz’s political career. He has little to no friends on the Hill—and a rapidly decreasing Rolodex back home. With no friends and significantly less cash, there’s a possibility that Cruz could face a primary challenge in 2018—and that appears to be what’s brewing in Texas (via CNN):
Well it looks like Cruz is going down.
