Anti-Trump Republican delegate Ken Cuccinelli told Reuters he escorted Cruz’s wife, Heidi, off the floor of the Republican National Convention out of concern for her safety.
Although Donald Trump has been rooting for Britain to leave the European Union well before the Brexit decision on Friday morning, some Republicans joined him in taking an affirmative stance on the issue—but only after the vote actually happened.
Occasionally, in the grim, months-long slog of the presidential election cycle, there is a brief beacon of light and hope for the next generation.
Failed campaign behind him, Ted Cruz will now recast himself as a party leader whose legislative agenda was endorsed by donors who backed him and citizens who cast their votes for him in primaries and caucuses. After reading 55 bills and 115 resolutions filed by Cruz, here’s the takeaway. Cruz is a destroyer.
We know Republicans are responsible for Trump, because you can be assured they’ll take credit for him if he wins. Here’s a quick review of who deserves the most blame.
A group of Republican senators has written a letter to the U.S. Attorney General to stifle any future federal inquiries concerning climate change, claiming it violates the First Amendment rights of corporations like Exxon, which suppressed its research into the phenomenon for several decades.
What first seemed a joke, then an unsettling possibility and then a troubling likelihood, became a grim certainty last week as Donald Trump, real estate developer turned reality show ringmaster turned would-be president, won an emphatic victory in Indiana’s Republican primary — leaving Trump the de facto nominee of what used to be called, with some pride, the Party of Lincoln.
Donald Trump is now the lone Republican in the 2016 race. It seems the Party of Lincoln is finally united, but this is hardly the sort of union that Lincoln imagined.
Trump walked away with most, if not all, of Indiana’s 57 delegates, the biggest trove until the June 7 primaries, where New Jersey and California will go to the polls.
Donald Trump’s strong showing in the last round of primaries looks set to continue today as Indiana voters go to the polls. As he has continued to win primary contests, his dominance has been making Ted Cruz delegates reconsider the way they plan on voting at the Republican National Convention.
Coming off the back of a disastrous week, in which Cruz failed to win all but three delegates up for grabs across the five states that voted last Tuesday, the Texas senator faces a steep uphill battle.
Nominating Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential pick was supposed to signal an upward trajectory for Ted Cruz’s flailing presidential campaign, though to most it seemed little more than a last ditch effort to stop Trump from securing the party nomination in Indiana, and later in California, where Fiorina was a candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2010.
Ted Cruz has taken to co-opting populist messaging on “wages,” but his own record is clear: Cruz has been a consistent opponent of raising the minimum wage, and is even skeptical of the concept of a minimum wage itself.
Rep. Peter King of New York said Thursday on CNN that maybe Boehner “gives Lucifer a bad name by comparing him to Ted Cruz.”
Forty years ago, when the Texas senator was just a 5-year-old at his parents home in Houston, another Republican candidate for president who was lagging behind in delegates and hoping to clinch the nomination with a desperately play named a vice presidential nominee. It was 1976, and presidential hopeful was Ronald Reagan.
In what can only be described as a last ditch effort to stop Donald Trump from securing the Republican Party nomination, Texas senator Ted Cruz announced former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina as his vice president pick. His campaign hopes that a Cruz-Fiorina ticket will energize his campaign as he gets closer to the July convention.
Ted Cruz and John Kasich are trying to push out the theory that they can stop Donald Trump. But that line doesn’t have much traction with voters.
Sanders’ top campaign aides said they would meet Wednesday to discuss their plans for the rest of the race—where they vowed to compete in all of the states including California. But they began to telegraph they’d be pleased if the Democratic Party embraced his core proposals such as making public universities tuition free and paying for that with a Wall St. trading tax.
Despite encountering ever-increasing resistance, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump remains keen on winning the Republican nomination. But in fighting what he views as establishment corruption, his campaign has engaged in bullying to get delegates to support him.
If you’re following along, either to keep abreast of current events or for pure schadenfreude, we’ve compiled each state’s delegate math and most recent polling to help keep track.
Republican presidential candidates John Kasich and Ted Cruz announced today that their campaigns would coordinate to keep party frontrunner Donald Trump from securing the necessary votes to win the nomination. A look at the agreement’s fine print indicates there is more than meets the eye.
