He pledged to support the nominee.

He finally kept his word.

That is the only principle at play here.



He's not doing it to keep his word...

He is doing it because the big donors cut him off and his primary opponent is using it against him...



He's doing it because if he wants to run in 2024, he will need Prez Trumps support.

Cruz did this to himself. He made a pledge to support the nominee. I was satisfied that he has never said "Don't vote for Trump" but it may be that he was getting enough pressure from his Texan constituents about his oath that he finally gave in.

I'd still vote for him again.




I hate Cruz and honestly think the pledge was stupid , but more than that invalidated after the attacks on. His wife, father and most embarrassingly, trump setting him up to be the bad guy of the RNC....


Trump isn't a conservative and will pass more liberal policies than a dem ever could.

I agrre, inspite of the personal attacks on his family etc. - he is doing the right thing and opposing Hillary.


The right thing for the GOP today?

Or the right thing for constitutional conservatism?

If trump wins, the evangelical, social issue lead GOP is dead. Now I think that's a great thing and one reason I'm voting for him.

But Ted has been preaching conservatism, not GOPism.


You have no idea what you're talking about.

Trump will move the country farther left than Hillary ever could while fighting a unified GOP.
