    Ted Cruz isn't going to have the last word in his feud with former House Speaker John Boehner, as the lawmaker who branded Cruz 'Lucifer in the flesh' is set to have some fun before all of political Washington at the White House Correspondents Dinner, MailOnline.com has learned. Boehner is still seething over Cruz – having branded him 'Lucifer in the Flesh' during a Stanford University speech this week. Boehner repeated his 'son of a bitch' characterization when the DailyMail spoke to him at a low-key DC waterfront watering hole just as most of DC was heading to glitzy lobbyist-subsidized...

    BURLINGAME, Calif. — Ted Cruz is speaking confidently about knocking off Donald Trump to take the GOP nomination, but his top staffers admit they’re getting nervous. In interviews, several aides, speaking on the condition of anonymity, expressed growing alarm that Cruz would lose Indiana’s primary on Tuesday — an outcome that would be a major blow to his hopes of holding Trump below the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the GOP nomination on the party convention’s first ballot. The aides concede that, without a win in an Indiana primary where 57 delegates are at stake, Cruz’s shot at the nomination...

    What if you were running for president of the United States and nobody showed up to your rally? Well, after countless pathetic turnouts at his rallies, Ted Cruz just suffered another major blow. That's right, while Trump's rally was jam packed with well over 10,000 and probably more patriots, Cruz's rally had a paltry 200- give or take. LMAO! Pathetic! Check it out! Quite a difference huh? Look, Trump will be our next president. Cruz doesn't stand a chance in hell. Now, I will point out that if Cruz were the nomination, I would back him 100% because I don't...

    With a #NeverTrump hashtag and a growing list of high-profile people and groups declaring that they will never support Donald Trump as the nominee of the Republican Party, the effort to block Trump from winning the nomination is gaining force. But former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Tuesday previewed what he said will be the single most effective argument for strong-arming anti-Trump Republicans back into the fold if he is the nominee. "You are either going to elect Hillary Clinton who will, I think, be the most corrupt president in American history, or you're going to help elect Donald Trump,"...

Republican front-runner Donald Trump won the other three. Cruz's victory will only matter if he can block Trump from clinching the nomination before the national convention in July. Virginia delegates will only be free to support whomever they choose after the first round of voting at the national convention.

    Former Gov. Pete Wilson of California used a surprise appearance before the state’s Republican convention on Saturday to endorse Senator Ted Cruz, warning that the nomination of Donald J. Trump could lead to political ruin for the party’s candidates this November. “My friends, we cannot afford a Republican nominee that brings us down-ticket decimation,” said Mr. Wilson, pointing to Mr. Trump’s weakness among women voters. He also used his remarks to argue that Mr. Trump could not be trusted with Supreme Court appointments, an issue of great importance to the highly engaged conservative activists gathered in a hotel ballroom here...

    As a general principle no conversations have involved more varied opinions than discussions about the supposed “conservative” media and their seeming cognitive dissonance when it comes to issues surrounding Senator Ted Cruz. Some people think these voices were just hoodwinked by Cruz and now their ego won’t permit them to admit the falsehood. Others think the pundits are too close to the candidate to see the inherent issues and contradictions; some propose their punditry is connected to financial motives. Perhaps it’s a combination therein, but many people just can’t figure it out... All of those aforementioned voices know this fact....

For the next 25 minutes, though, Mr. Trump spoke little...

While Trump hosted a rowdy crowd of thirty-thousand Patriots yesterday in Costa Mesa, California, Ted and Carly were barely able to fill a small auditorium. The mainstream media won’t report on the low-turnout crowds for Cruz – which are getting smaller by the day. Meanwhile, Team Trump continues to grow and gain momentum with crowds averaging 15, 20 and 30k strong. As we head into the final leg of the GOP nomination race, it’s clear...

Perry appeared on ABC’s The View and shocked the country when he did not side with Cruz who hails from his state. Texas loyalty has helped the Cruz campaign for some time and this change is a massive defeat for Lyin’ Ted. At first, Perry seemed reluctant to fully praise Donald. He specified that some of Trump’s brash insults worry him and he wishes Donald could adopt a more “serious” tone. However, Trump’s positives clearly outweigh his occasional outbursts because Perry formally told reporters...

Boxer effectively used Fiorina’s HP tenure against her, criticizing the former CEO for laying off thousands at the California-based company and moving many jobs overseas.

    National Review ^ | April 28, 2016
    We get it. John Boehner doesn’t like Ted Cruz. In a witless cheap shot, Boehner called him “Lucifer in the flesh” at an event at Stanford University. Boehner’s attitude is widespread among Republican insiders who are foolishly allowing personal ill will to cloud their reasoned judgment about who, among the candidates left in the GOP race, is the best representative of conservative principles and policies, and about who would be the best candidate in the upcoming general election. On both counts, Cruz is the obvious choice. Ted Cruz is a constitutional conservative dedicated to reducing the outsized federal government to...

    Ted Cruz got crushed in Virginia on primary day, but even Donald Trump’s forces believe he’s about to stuff the state’s national convention delegation full of supporters anyway. Virginia GOP insiders with knowledge of the state’s delegate selection process expect Cruz backers to overrun this Saturday’s state convention and use their numbers to guarantee that the 13 statewide delegates to the national convention lean Cruz.

    The Resurgent ^ | April 29, 2016 | Erick Erickson
    There were several events yesterday that suggest to me the winds have shifted in Ted Cruz’s favor since he named Carly Fiorina his running mate. First, John Boehner had a complete and utter meltdown about Ted Cruz yesterday. He referred to Cruz as both an S.O.B. and Lucifer. Then Peter King, the noxious congressman from New York, came out and declared Cruz worse than the devil. He was followed up by former senator Judd Gregg who declared he would rather Trump than Cruz, even though he is a Kasich guy. The fact that . In fact, more polling out of...

    A CNN article today points out the internal polling within Indiana is following this consistent pattern: […] Cruz allies and people close to the campaign describe a budding sense of gloom, with internal polls diving as Trump mounted even stronger than expected showings in his native northeast. In Indiana, which Cruz backers once believed they were favored to win after his strong defeat of Trump in Wisconsin, Cruz’s numbers have fallen precipitously: Once leading, Cruz now trails in the state by eight to 10 points, according to a person who has seen the numbers, with Trump over the 40% mark....

    A new poll released on Thursday found Donald Trump with a big lead in Oregon, a state not necessarily expected to be favorable to the Manhattan billionaire. The poll, conducted by the Portland-based Hoffman Research Group, found Trump leading Ted Cruz, a Texas senator, by 17 points. Trump, the GOP frontrunner, was the choice of 43% of respondents.
