Even if John Kasich, the graceless loser, had dropped out of the race for the White House weeks ago, the returns from Tuesday’s Acela Primaries in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island show Donald Trump would have won them in landslides.
Cruz, the “originalist” constitutional lawyer and former solicitor general of Texas authored more than 80 US Supreme Court briefs and made more than 40 oral SCOTUS arguments winning important victories on gun rights, the Pledge of Allegiance and the right to display the Ten Commandments.
He’s a fighter and was once described as “off the charts brilliant”. He has absolutely no intention of surrendering to Trump.
Today, Cruz announced his running mate would be Carly Fiorina. I’ve always liked Carly and she will most certainly be an effective attack dog given her blistering assaults on the Democrats’ “presumptive nominee” who is under FBI investigation.
The unambiguous truth is Cruz has very few arrows left in his quiver. Carly may not make any difference in Indiana. Some pundits have referred to the Indiana primary as Cruz’s “Alamo” and we all know how that worked out.
He knows he is under-performing in Oregon and New Mexico so it appears his strategy is concentrated on the California primary where 172 delegates are at stake.
Carly could help dominate the news cycle if she came out and interrupted Cruz and just took the mic away.— Jonah Goldberg (@JonahNRO) April 27, 2016
