Meanwhile, last night at the RNC, Mike Pence was overshadowed by Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who refused to officially endorse Donald Trump.
Sen. Ted Cruz: “If you love our country and love your children as much as I know that you do, stand and speak and vote your conscience. Vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”
That’s the crowd booing last night at the RNC, as Ted Cruz refused to endorse Donald Trump. Cruz’s wife, Heidi Cruz, had to be escorted out by security as she was heckled by the pro-Trump delegates, who shouted “Goldman Sachs!” Heidi Cruz is a managing director at the private equity firm. After Cruz’s speech, delegates expressed outrage.
Shaun Ireland: “Those one, two sentences is all we needed. And instead, he did this 'vote your conscience,' did a mic drop and walked out. And what it really was is a big middle finger to this entire convention. … And Ted Cruz, tonight, just set the United States up to be ruled by that corrupt woman, Hillary—crooked Hillary Clinton, just so he could set himself up to be president in four years. There probably won’t even be a Republican Party in four years.”
