In fact, despite his attacks on his partys donor class and establishment, Cruz, the Texas senator who won last weeks Iowa caucuses, appears to have locked down the support of four of the top six donors ― the Wilks family of Cisco, Texas (the No. 1 donor on POLITICOs list), New York hedge fund tycoon Bob Mercer (No. 2), Texas energy investor Toby Neugebauer (No. 4) and Illinois manufacturing moguls Dick and Liz Uihlein (No. 6) ― but only one other donor on the list.

Well, good for him!
He’s not a questionable billionaire who got his money from daddy.
Borrowed a Million turned it into 10 Billion.
Cruz isn't fighting the Washington Cartel
Clearly he works for them
Dang, you’ve got that Lefitst mentality down pretty good there.
“Born to wealthy.”
Let me guess, “White Privilege” too right?
Are you on board with, “You didn’t build that!” too?
Some FReepers have gone round the bend.
Lots of Conservatives sound like Occupiers at some point.
Pray America wakes
Trump received a $1,000,000 loan from his father and built his empire. Later he inherited his share from his father’s $200,000,000 estate less taxes. That inheritance came well after his future was secured.
Another GOPe talking point out the window. Dear Pinnochio Marco and Pinnoccio Cruz: Enough with the constant lies. If you do not have ideas that can beat Trump then it is better to stay silent than continue to destroy your credibility.
I hear ya...
You deserve to be bitter. You backed a loser.
What has happened to FR. Everything we used to like is now bad, and everything that was bad is now good
awesome! not every billionaire donates to leftists like trump did
But even if Donald had the luxury of starting out above where most people are able to start from, he didn't sit back upon his laurels and rely solely upon his family's wealth. Instead he multiplied that wealth several times over.
Starting from a position of wealth in some ways is even harder because it is so easy to allow yourself to be less motivated to make something of yourself and instead ride the wave of success your parent(s) created.
Ted can’t be bought?
I think a little more information is need to make that claim.
And the far left wing Politico web site is now their source for truth?
(People have gone insane.)
google trump democrat donations. its quite public trump donated to leftists
I guess it doesn’t matter to Trump fans where one gets his money. From taking property from little old ladies in eminent domain cases or from paying off Washington insiders. What a bunch of hypocrisy being espoused here.
I am amazed at the excuses Trumpeteers come up with. We could fill a book with them.
Cruz might not even matter after Tuesday
Not to mention he was a partner in his father's business and helped him build it.
“From taking property from little old ladies in eminent domain cases”
Can you cite a case where he took some little old lady’s property by eminent domain? Just one.
