The chess pieces are being moved into place, slowly but surely. Despite his lead in the delegate count, Donald Trump will NOT be the happy recipient of any “party unity” – at least not for now. After last night’s festivities, Trump now has 739 delegates to 465 for Ted Cruz, but he’s not feeling the love.
Governor Jeb Bush has announced he will be endorsing Ted Cruz for president.
In his statement, Bush said,“Ted is a consistent, principled conservative who has demonstrated the ability to appeal to voters and win primary contests. Washington is broken and the only way Republicans can hope to win back the White House and put our nation on a better path is to support a nominee who can articulate how conservative policies will help people rise up and reach their full potential.”
But here’s the zinger: “For the sake our party and country, we must move to overcome the divisiveness and vulgarity Donald Trump has brought into the political arena, or we will certainly face our chance to defeat the Democratic nominee and revers President Obama’s failed policies.”
So here’s a funny thing. I believe this is the first time ultra-conservative Mark Levin and moderate Jeb Bush have ever been on the same page. I guess that’s party unity!
