BREAKING: Two GOP Candidates Want to Skip Fox Debate to Join Trump’s Veterans’ Event
This is exactly what I thought might happen. Rumor has it two candidates have called Trump and said they want to attend his veterans fundraiser instead of the GOP debate. Any takers on who they were? Cruz and Carson come to mind. I guess we’ll see. I’m a Cruz gal, but I won’t watch tonight because of the way they have done Trump and the fact that they pandered to Michael Moore. They are also bringing on a radical Muslim who compared Trump to Hitler and an illegal immigrant who served in the military to become legal. I also can’t stand to watch Megyn Kelly anymore. So, as much as I love Cruz, I think not. I’m not alone by any means either.
From Gateway Pundit:
The rumors are swirling…
Two Republican candidates reportedly called Donald Trump and said they wanted to attend his veterans fundraiser tonight at Drake University.
FOX News is holding a debate at the same time.
Trump obviously feels bad that their advertising rates are dropping after he announced he would not be attending the Iowa debate.
It would tickle the hell out of me if Cruz and Carson joined Trump at his event and left Fox News high and dry. I can dream can’t I? I’m so sick of the media and their heavy handed political manipulations. “On Greta, 87 percent of the people watching said they would not watch the debate if I’m not in it,” Trump added, referencing Fox anchor Greta Van Susteren’s “On the Record.” “Wow, what an honor!” The Donald J. Trump Special Event to Benefit Veterans Organizations is scheduled to take place at Drake University, just three miles from the GOP debate’s main stage. Trump’s campaign has described it as a fundraiser for multiple military veterans’ organizations, naming the Wounded Warriors Project as one possibility. Super-PACs aligned with Ted Cruz, Trump’s closest rival for the GOP nomination, have pledged $1.5 million to charity if Trump accepts a one-on-one debate with the Texas senator.
