Ted Cruz not endorsing Trump would have meant something if it weren’t for this:
Ted gave his word he’d support the nominee.
As of last night’s self-absorbed speech that meant practically nothing, that nothing means even less because it very openly laid bare how seriously Cruz takes his own word. Not that most voters really seem to care about a candidate’s word any more, Cruz pretty much just negated any impact his speech might have had by not raising his hand in the past. No damage whatsoever to Trump here. The Republicans who seem to think having Hillary as president is better than having a member of their own party still feel that way. Cruz could have brought some of them into the fold, but refused to do so. As far as I’m concerned, I didn’t like Cruz before, he’s politically toast now.
And best I recall, John Kasich accepted the pledge as well.
And oddly enough, the only one who withheld from asserting he’d support whoever the candidate was, was Trump.
