“Let that be a lesson. You get ONE CHANCE to get it right with Trump - if you blow it, life gets very difficult, as Ted Cruz is now dealing with.”
Are you sure about that? Losing Cruz’s senate seat or the governor’s race in Florida would hurt Trump as much as anyone.
It wasn’t Trump supporters that chased Ted Cruz and his wife from a restaurant earlier today. It had nothing to do with any past competition with Trump for the nomination. In fact, it is BECAUSE of his support for the president’s judicial nominations, border policies, tax reforms, and other things that Cruz is being attacked so viciously.
Further, President Trump has offered to hold a Texas rally to boost Cruz’s reelection. That doesn’t sound like Cruz blew his one chance to support President Trump.
Cruz put a bad taste in people’s mouths at the convention 2 years ago. It wasn’t needed, Trump was the nominee, period. So now when Cruz needs to fire up the base, he’s having trouble and needs Trump’s help.
It was a dumb move by Cruz, but I will agree that he’s been fine since he came around from that (a few weeks after)...but memories are long, especially with conservatives.
