Ted Cruz didnt attack Donald Trump early in the cycle because others who had ended up as roadkill.
In an interview with Wisconsin's Charlie Sykes of WTMJ, the Texas senator was pressed about his earlier fawning statements about Trump, including a tweet from December that said he wouldnt engage with Trump because the billionaire businessman was terrific.
What took you so long? WTMJ asked, referring to Cruz's now full-throated attacks on Trump.
It was a wonderfully diverse, talented, dynamic, young field. It had really incredible talent. If you look at a number of the candidates that took on Donald Trump early on, they ended up as roadkill, Cruz said in the Wednesday interview, which was first reported by BuzzFeed News.
Cruz said the strategy all along was to first build up a strong core of support before directly taking on Donald. And not be roadkill, Cruz added. I am very strongly committed on the anti-roadkill approach.

Except that you ( plural, as in many on FR ) Cruz supporters have said from the start that it was Cruz or nobody for them.
Nope. Nice try, though.
Cruz is done.
I just wonder what Trump has in store for Hillary. I have some ideas.
Won’t vote. Cruzers like you have succeeded in convincing me a vote virus Cruz is the status quo AND a personally sleazy, personally unprincipled guy.
Enjoy the Clinton regime. I’ll be on a far-away beach where my dollars are like gold.
I’m surely not early voting if Cruz in the nominee. Who knows in what ways the real Cruz will be revealed as November comes closer.
Really? So you didn’t need money when I sent it to you years ago or you just “got better”?
I got worse, actually. Thanks for asking.
I'll express a thought here. I just might. If the nomination is stolen from Trump, it means the backstabbing elite have run amuck and can't be stopped. The nation is done. Let the dems have at the mess while we prepare for doomsday.
What Cruz just said is we can't believe a word he says.
So Cruz using “tactics” like every other person on Earth that has ever run for office, is off-putting to you?
That’s a low blow and should’ve been kept to a private reply.
Cruz’s tactics have been off the rails since the Iowa campaign. I’m not voting for “meet the new boss same as the old boss”.
Why are we even discussing voting for Cruz vs. Hillary?
In what universe does he become the nominee? Not in the primary. Not in a brokered convention ... he’s a pawn now. Road kill, as it were.
I find it hard to believe how many here want to turn the USA into a third world North American Union hell hole by electing the first term junior Senator from Texas, the Canadian Ted Cruz. One would think the election of a not NBC, Harvard Law grade, first term junior Senator would had taught people a lesson. Apparently not. Well I will not participate in the destruction of the USA by voting Cruz in Nov.
I've known that ever since his TPA/TPP flip flop. The guy is a liar.
I didn't produce that ad attacking Trump's wife! It was a SuperPac!
But, isn't that your SuperPac that is supporting you?
You can't PROVE that! And then Trump threatened my wife! I am a Knight in Shining Armor - DEFENDING my wife!
But Trump only responded to your attack on his wife, and didn't even say anything specifically about yours. He only implied there was something there with her financial ties to Goldman Sachs, and how Goldman Sachs money is propping up your campaign. What are those ties?
Trump is a scumbag, coward, loser!! A poopy face A-hole bully! I am above all this name calling and attacks! Trump is a dog vomit, mean, bad, bad, jerk face!
So very true!
Fashion victim Heidi Cruz is no match for Melania/s beauty and glamour. But Heidi has had a hand in undermining US ntl security. Read on.
There are several elements to what appears to be the globalist plot as it relates to the terror/refugee bombings. That the refugee crisis is being exploited to expand Islam, undermine Western culture, national sovereignty, and even nationhood itself is now beyond dispute.
Some of the top globalists who were lying low are openly bragging about it....like Heidis employer Goldman Sachs, who even takes a slap at Donald Trump.
I will ask the governments to cooperate, to recognize that sovereignty is an illusion that sovereignty is an absolute illusion that has to be put behind us, declared former Goldman Sachs chairman Peter Sutherland, an ex-member of the Bilderberg Steering Committee who currently serves as the UN special representative of the secretary-general for international migration.
He continues: The days of hiding behind borders and fences are long gone. We have to work together and cooperate together to make a better world. And that means taking on some of the old shibboleths, taking on some of the old historic memories and images of our own country and recognizing that were part of humankind.
NOTE Heidi represented G/S in the push to impose the North America UnionMexico to Canada- on our nation.
