To his great credit, Ted Cruz denounced calls to stop presidential front-runner Donald Trump during a potential brokered convention. Cruz, speaking Friday, March 4th, at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), warned that the grass roots would be justifiably infuriated if their will was disregarded. “Any time you hear someone talking about a brokered convention, it is the Washington establishment in a fevered frenzy, they are really frustrated because all their chosen candidates, their golden children, the voters keep rejecting,” he stated.
"So they seize on this plan of a brokered convention, and the D.C. power brokers will drop someone in who is exactly to the liking of the Washington establishment. If that would happen, we would have a manifest revolt on our hands all across this country." Cruz believes that there is only one proper way to beat Trump: “with the voters,” he says.
Cruz has more character and integrity than The Donald. Ironically, Cruz is what Trump has led his supporters to believe he is. An actual populist outsider with long-held conservative beliefs who is deeply concerned about illegal immigration and political-correctness run-amok. More ironic still, he is the closest to Trump in the polls and must be incredibly frustrated at this juncture, yet his very character and integrity will not let him look for shortcuts or to the use of dirty tricks to take Trump down.
