Ted Cruz to Unveil Senate Endorsements This Week

Ted Cruz to Unveil Senate Endorsements This Week

As the idea of a Trump nomination grows closer and closer, people in the GOP seem to finally be wising up to what they must do to stop him: align with Ted Cruz. And now, Cruz is set to reveal new Senate endorsements this week.

Ted Cruz’s colleagues may loathe him, but at least some seem to have found somebody they dislike even more. With the prospect of Donald Trump’s nomination looming over the GOP, Cruz is set to unveil a slew of endorsements — at least one from a Senate colleague – as early as this week, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Cruz has until now failed to earn the endorsement of any of his fellow senators, a fact that Donald Trump has beaten him over the head with. But as many see Marco Rubio’s prospects dimming, some members of the upper chamber are beginning to make peace with Cruz, convinced that he’s the only candidate who can stop Trump. If Rubio can’t clinch his home state of Florida on March 15, yet more may come forward to back the devil they know.

Nebraska’s Ben Sasse has been one of the only Republican senators to publicly take a stand against Trump thus far. In an interview last week, Sasse recounted the moment South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham conceded that Republicans may have to “rally around Ted Cruz as the only way to stop Donald Trump.”

It’s sad — if these morons in the GOP had put aside their hatred of Cruz from the beginning, they could have avoided this mess with Trump. And it’s ironic, because Trump’s supporters love him for being outside of the establishment; the reality is, Trump is very much a part of the establishment, while the entire reason that Cruz hasn’t garnered many endorsements is because he is not.
