How is this possibly good news? Former presidential candidate and current Senator Lindsey Graham has announced that he will be supporting Senator Ted Cruz for president…sort of.
In what must be the most outlandish “endorsement” ever, Graham said on CNN that he thinks Cruz is the best alternative to stopping Donald Trump. BUT “John Kasich is the most viable general election candidate.”
Huh? After winning one state?
You might recall, as CNN put it, Support for Cruz is an about-face for the South Carolina senator, who compared nominating GOP front-runer Donald Trump or Cruz to being shot or poisoned. He recently mocked Cruz’s unpopularity among his colleagues, saying earlier this month: “If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody would convict you.”
Folks on Twitter naturally weighed in passionately.
What do you think? Does this help or hurt?
