    Donald Trump is reportedly planning on bankrolling super-PACs that would oppose Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), two of his former primary opponents who snubbed him during the party’s convention this week...

    Cruz’s “Conscience” Cruz played dog in the manger at the Republican convention. Someone should have whispered in his ear these words from Omar Khayyam: " “The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ, Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line, Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.” Some say his phrase “vote your conscience” was just a call to support the entire ticket. I don’t. I think the delegates who booed him had it right. As my friend JM Hanes observed: "Vote your conscience" is a veritable NeverTrump...

Trump at the Republican National Convention.

He made a solemn pledge to support the Republican nominee. And he broke that crucial promise. I thought he was a patriot. Last night, he proved he isn’t. However bitter and angry he is at Donald Trump, he knows that Trump is the only person standing between Hillary Clinton (a liar, a fraud, a thief and a traitor) and the presidency. And yet –...

    “I mean, give me a break, Ted, go ahead and endorse [Donald Trump]. You lost, he won. I think Cruz is a terrific guy, strict constitutionalist. He’s not the most bubbly guy I’ve ever run across, if you understand what I’m saying. But, I love that dude. All the guys who lost, and gals, they all need to swallow their pride and say, ‘The people — the Republican party has said Donald Trump is the man we want in the White House,'” Robertson stated.

    Ted Cruz walks off stage at Republican Convention to the boos of the crowd as Trump is cheered. Cruz said he couldn’t endorse Trump in good conscience for attacking his wife during the campaign. Cruz should know that when you stick your hand into a dogfight, expect to get bit. Ted Cruz went to the Republican convention and refused to endorse Trump. I expected as much from Jeb Bush who said he would win without the TEA Party, and not only broke his word, his bond, to support the people’s choice of candidate, but is so petty that he wouldn’t...

    FR brothers and sisters, this thread is for all the Ted Cruz supporters. I'm a proud Texan, and ashamed of Ted Cruz. I am supporting the Trump / Pence ticket all the way. This experiment in a republic form of government with limited federal controls will not survive a Hillary presidency. I believe in my heart that Trump will be a transformational president. The good he'll do will outlive his Trump Towers. As for Ted, I don't think he'll win another election here in the great state of Texas. That being said, there are FReepers who still support Ted.
