Ted Cruz is STILL running AGAINST Donald Trump….
And he seems to have NO problem helping Hillary Clinton even if he says he won’t vote for her….
Cruz is trying to draw political blood for the attacks Trump dropped on him during the Republican primaries it would seem…
Cruz is takig it personally…
Ted Cruz refused to endorse Donald Trump in daring and dramatic fashion on Wednesday, telling Republicans to “vote your conscience” in a 20-minute snub that played out in slow motion on national television.
Cruz’s rejection exposed the raw rifts still festering inside the Republican Party, overshadowed the planned coming-out speech for Trump’s vice-presidential pick, Mike Pence, and all but guaranteed that Republicans would depart Cleveland a party divided.
Boos rained down on Cruz, and his wife had to be escorted from the hall amid verbal taunts in an unreal scene that marked an end to a surreal primary season.
“We deserve leaders who stand for principle, who unite us all behind shared values, who cast aside anger for love,” Cruz said. “That is the standard we should expect from everybody.”
It was a standard that Cruz determined Trump did not meet.
“Don’t stay home in November,” Cruz told the audience. “Stand and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”
But he wouldn’t say Trump’s name.
In doing so, Cruz handed Hillary Clinton and the Democrats a potentially devastating cudgel of a slogan — “vote your conscience” — with which to hammer Trump all the way through November. Clinton grabbed it immediately, tweeting the phrase and a link to a voter registration page.
