Some Primary mid-morning news…
Headline from The Hill:
Cruz says he doesn’t expect to win, but “he’s leaving the door open.”
“We launched this campaign intending to win. The reason we suspended our campaign was that with the Indiana loss, I felt there was no path to victory,” he said Tuesday on Glenn Beck’s radio program.
“If that changes, we will certainly respond accordingly.”
Just when they think he’s out, they pull him back in.
Maybe he shouldn’t have canceled that rally in Lincoln.
Or announced this plan BEFORE the polls opened…
Jeff Fortenberry told NPR this morning that Donald Trump hasn’t earned his vote yet.
“I’m not simply going to say never, because I do not want to empower Hillary Clinton. But at the same time I believe Donald Trump has to earn my support by giving substantive answers on economic security and national security and upholding a tradition of social conservation which is so important to me and many other people throughout the country.”
Unless I missed something, it’s not clear on who Fort is voting for today — unless he already voted early.
As stupid does…
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus commented to Sean Hannity about the Third Party idea floated by Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse and others:
“No, I have not talked Mitt Romney or Ben [Sasse]. I don’t believe it for a second,” Priebus said on the Sean Hannity Show.
“And you know what, in some ways, maybe I should talk to them about it, but, on the other side Sean, I start making phone calls like that, and then, it’s like, the party chairman is – and I’m not gonna give any gas to that fire,” Priebus said.
“I don’t need to acknowledge stupid ideas by calling people on those ideas.”
