Skip to comments.Cruz, Rubio Camps Discuss Delegates
Posted on 03/21/2016 12:11:06 PM PDT by justlittleoleme
Top political aides to Sens. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz connected Friday to discuss how delegates currently bound to Rubio might be allocated, a Cruz campaign aide confirmed to RealClearPolitics.
Although the conversation between Rubios former campaign manager, Terry Sullivan, and Cruz Campaign Manager Jeff Roe was brief and no resolution was reached, the development suggests the two former rivals could be moving toward detente if not an active collaboration.
If Rubio does decide to endorse Cruz, the aide said, that decision would likely be reached between the two of them, not among senior aides.
Marco and Ted are good friends, so the reality is, this wouldnt be like how other endorsements have taken place, said the aide to Cruz. The way this will happen is Marco and Ted will talk, and both of them will let us know.
Another line of communication opened Friday, however, when Sullivan and Roe spoke by phone to discuss the fate of Rubios delegates. They also talked about the state of the race more generally, but did not touch on the possibility of an endorsement from Rubio.
Asked whether an agreement has been reached between the two camps, Roe said no. We have no agreement and any suggestion to the contrary is false, he said. Maybe it will become true, but that certainly is not the case right now in any shape, fashion or form.

I CAN HAZ UR DELEGATES BRO??
Here’s an idea:
Endorse Trump. Just saying...
Rubio is a fool.
It would be hard to top the Ben Carson con.
More RINO/GOPe collaboration.
Any Cruz people want to pop in and give their best “I see nothin’” speech?
I can dig it. This is an excellent way to score 100 plus nominating delegates and get right on Hot Gasbag’s delegate lead; shrink it immensely. I’d have suggested those two make up ASAP in a strategic alliance and get their funk together. After the way Trump savaged Rubio you can bet he will release to Cruz.
Dos Cubanos Hermanos Siempre!
Hmmm BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER - right “Outsider” Cruz?
Carson thinks he’s “IN”...but he’s on the list like many others. I believe there is a connection between the Trump Family and St. Jude’s. Time will tell.
A candidate cannot release his delegates TO another candidate. Many states don’t recognize delegates as released at all.
Cruz = Bush Trojan Horse
Yeah...They fight and totally disagree during the debates and campaigns, but now, they are ‘good buddies”....
Neither one is honest...Just true professional politicians...
Wow. Just wow.
Carson was conned by Trump to endorse him.
If you would like to be added to the
Cruz is wasting his time. He needs only to concentrate on how large a net to buy when he goes to catchin' frogs with jeb.
“I can dig it. This is an excellent way to score 100 plus nominating delegates”
Ted cant win them, so go team up with Gopes and RINOs and then still pretend like you aren’t anything but one of them.
Bunch a frigging phonies.
It is also a good demonstration of one GOPe insider sucking up to a fellow GOPe insider, for the good of the party of course.
