    GREENFIELD, Ind. — At a campaign stop just days before the critical Indiana primary, Heidi Cruz, wife of Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, said one of her husband's strengths in the campaign is that he "is an immigrant." "Ted is an immigrant," Mrs. Cruz said, emphasizing the word "is." "He is Hispanic."

    Ted Cruz and John Kasich are ceding states to each other as part of a broader effort to stop Donald Trump, an abrupt change in strategy that the campaigns announced Sunday night. “To ensure that we nominate a Republican who can unify the Republican Party and win in November, our campaign will focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Gov. Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico, and we would hope that allies of both campaigns would follow our lead,” Cruz campaign manager Jeff Roe said in a statement. Previously, the Cruz...

    Ted Cruz and John Kasich issued startling statements Sunday night about their paths ahead, the first sign the two campaigns are coordinating to deny Donald Trump the Republican presidential nomination. Within minutes of each other, the pair issued statements saying they will divide their efforts in upcoming contests with Cruz focusing on Indiana and Kasich devoting his efforts to Oregon and New Mexico. The strategy is aimed at blocking Trump from gaining the 1,237 delegates necessary to claim to GOP nomination this summer.

    During the Maine GOP caucus on March 5, candidate Ted Cruz came out on top with about 46 percent of the vote. Based on the caucus result Cruz was allocated 12 delegates, leaving nine for Trump and two for John Kasich. cruz quoteMaine’s Governor Paul LePage coordinated with the Cruz camp, the Trump camp and the Kasich camp to insure the state convention would provide equitable distribution of the delegates based on the caucus result. This is called a “unity ticket”, with delegates assigned based on the results of the caucus. However, during the state’s convention this weekend the Cruz...

    In these speeches, Cruz sometimes admits — with disbelief — that he once supported Fidel Castro’s revolution. “I started speaking at different rotary clubs around Austin, Texas — in favor of Castro! I still thought he was the savior of the country,” he told FreedomWorks, a conservative group, in 2013. Local news articles and documents from the late 1950s offer a clearer picture of the days of Cruz as a young man, then a believer in the revolution and a visible college activist. On Jan. 8, 1959, Fidel Castro rode victoriously into Havana. The country’s dictator, Batista, had fled a...

    Peter King on Friday said he would back Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump over Ted Cruz, highlighting the billionaire as a more reasonable general-election candidate than the “phony,” “hopeless,” “irredeemable” Texas senator. King voted for Ohio Gov. John Kasich in New York’s primary, though he also correctly predicted that Trump would score a big victory in the state Tuesday. Similarly to the way he shied away from characterizing his vote as a Kasich endorsement, King stressed Friday that he isn’t endorsing Trump but remarked that he would choose the real estate mogul over Cruz. “But Donald Trump, to be an...

Cruz said, “What I agree is that the Democratic process works, and Donald whines and complains when the voters reject him. The voters are going to decide. We’ve won five states in a row. Donald won his home state, which surprised nobody. And it’s the people — we are seeing Republicans uniting behind our campaign.

Cruz had previously called a contested convention likely and that it seemed the party was heading in that direction.

"We are headed to a contested convention,” Cruz said in an interview with Philadelphia talk-radio personality Chris Stigall this morning. “At this point, nobody is getting 1,237.

    Jamie Weinstein makes the valid point that Donald Trump’s New York victory wasn’t a surprise. We all saw it was coming, and—in regards to predicting whether Trump can collect the 1,237 delegates he needs—the results were baked into the cake. States like Indiana and California are much more important, inasmuch as they are the known unknowns. What I think is remarkable, however, is that Ted Cruz picked up zero delegates in the state, and actually performed much worse than John Kasich. This is not important in terms of mathematically stopping Trump (had Cruz picked up a dozen delegates and come...

    There are several resident status classifications in the United States: natural born citizen, naturalized citizen, diplomatic immunity, temporary resident (on a visa), lawful permanent resident (green card holder), and illegal alien. Ted Cruz isn't the child of diplomats, and he was never naturalized as a citizen. So either he is an illegal alien or a natural born citizen. There is no middle ground. If you don't believe he is a natural born citizen, then you believe there is an illegal alien serving in the U.S. Senate. There is no middle ground. You should immediately call for his deportation.

    It’s not often that a Republican presidential primary in New York matters. This year it does. It’s a time for choosing, to paraphrase Ronald Reagan. The choice is between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, though John Kasich is on the ballot too. The real race to the nomination has been Trump v. Cruz for at least several weeks and it is likely to remain that way. Faced with that choice, it’s easy. Legal Insurrection started in October 2008 in anticipation of the Obama presidency.

You would think that, instead of jeering at Cruz for his hustle, Trump fans would boo their own candidate for fielder’s indifference.

    On perhaps the defining issue of the 2016 Republican primary, Senator Ted Cruz falls well to the right of Ronald Reagan, who supported granting legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants. He opposes abortion even in cases of rape and incest, and has called for a federal amendment that would allow states to avoid performing or recognizing same-sex marriages. He wants to return to the gold standard, abolish the Internal Revenue Service and create a tax structure simple enough for Americans to file on postcards. He has criticized Donald J.

    Ted Cruz claims that his tax plan would supercharge economic growth, boosting GDP by as much as 5% a year for a decade or more. That’s, umm, an ambitious goal to be sure. However, there is actually good reason to believe that he’s right. As long as we’re careful about how we define GDP growth and also as long as we consider all the ways in which his plan will change the economy. This does mean being a little perverse in our assumptions: but also correct in our assumptions. The basics of the plan are that income taxes will be...

Cruz is trying to prevent Trump from obtaining the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the Republican nomination at the July convention in Cleveland. By continuing to rack up small wins, Cruz is gaining ground on the New York real estate mogul, who has thus far failed to shift...

    (Reality Check 753) Reality Check has already shown how “Neutral” Conservative News Websites Breitbart and The Daily Wire are actually fronts for the Ted Cruz Campaign. In our article “The $25 Million Dollar Trump Take Down” we clearly show that the owners of those sites donated over $25 Million Dollars to the Cruz Campaign and then use their websites to promote him. But is Talk Radio also on the take? Reality Check dug into Cruz FEC Filings and discovered the Cruz PACs paid a Talk Radio Insider over $8 Million Dollars, and the endorsements of Glenn Beck, Mark Levin and...

    Senator Ben Sasse announced that he and his wife have voted early in the Nebraska GOP primary for his colleague Senator Ted Cruz. Senator Sasse has been vocally opposed to the current Republican frontrunner Donald Trump. Back in February, he penned an open letter to Trump supporters on Facebook explaining that in his view, Mr. Trump is not committed to defending the United States Constitution and the principles of conservatism.

    When conservatives think about what they most hate about the left, several factors come to mind: their racist appeals, their whining social justice warrior nonsense, their distinct willingness to attack conservative women, their consistent stream of lies, their perversion of buzzwords.

    Probably one of the most unlikely scandalettes of the 2016 primary has to be the National Enquirer “exposé ” of Senator Ted Cruz’s alleged serial infidelity. Nobody knows to this day where the story originated, although some reporters suggested after it was run that the Rubio campaign had shopped it to them earlier in the cycle. But Donald Trump is known to be quite close to the publisher of the Enquirer (a man aptly named David Pecker) so it’s always possible the story was run for his benefit. Cruz denied it and it faded in the excitement of the campaign,...

    Thursday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” in a preview clip of Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) town hall, while discussing when he accused Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell, of lying back in July, Cruz declared every word he said “was true and accurate.” Cruz’s echoed the sentiment he had shared in a CNN interview last week, in which he refused to apologize to McConnell for the accusation. Partial transcript as follows: TODD: You called the senate majority leader a liar on the senate floor. That’s not sat well with your colleagues. Do you regret calling him a liar on...

    Attendees at the annual New York State Republican gala were more interested in consuming their dinner Thursday night than listening to Ted Cruz address the audience. The three remaining Republican presidential candidates gave remarks to hundreds of guests at the Manhattan event. GOP front-runner Donald Trump spoke first, followed by Ohio Gov. John Kasich before finally Cruz took the stage. While some guests remained seated during the introduction of the New York businessman, who leads the race with a 30-point margin, Cruz received the worst reception. Guests could even be heard on livestreamed footage poking around with knives and forks...
  • New Jersey court rules that Ted Cruz is a “natural born citizen” eligible to become president

    On Tuesday, New Jersey Administrative law Judge Jeff Masin ruled against a lawsuit claiming that Senator Ted Cruz is not eligible to become president because he is not a “natural born citizen.” The plaintiffs claimed that Cruz is ineligible because, although he is the son of a US citizen, he was born in Canada (where his parents were living at the time). Judge Masin’s opinion is notable for its detailed analysis of the evidence on the original meaning of the “natural born citizen” and recent scholarship on the subject. I think the opinion is well-reasoned and very persuasive. Judge Masin...

    Ted Cruz on Thursday backed a controversial North Carolina law that restricts bathroom access for gay and transgender people. “Men should not be going to the bathroom with little girls,” the Republican presidential candidate said during a taping of a MSNBC town hall in Buffalo, N.Y. “That is a perfectly reasonable determination for the people to make.”
