Ted Cruz Defends Decision Not To Endorse Trump: What Do You Think?

At some point Ted Cruz’s feud with Donald Trump and the insults traded between candidates during the Primary are not our problem.

Ted Cruz Committed Political Suicide On National TV

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Last night Ted Cruz pleased the 5% of #NeverTrump Republicans and disappointed and angered the vast majority in the conservative movement. In doing so Ted Cruz lost his chance to be the leader of the conservative movement, and effectively handed that mantle over to Mike Pence, in whom conservatives are now likely to invest their time, energy, resources and hopes to advance the conservative agenda.

Mike Pence Just Made Himself De Facto Leader Of The Conservative Movement

How long that leadership lasts, or if it will be contested, remains to be seen, but by joining the Trump ticket, and last night through his remarks to the Republican National Convention, Mike Pence showed he understands the Trump coalition is the future, and he showed real leadership by making himself an essential element of that coalition’s success in the 2016 election; future-focused conservatives now have the leader they’ve been looking for and it's Mike Pence.

Ted Cruz's convention speech should emulate Reagan's in 1976

If Ted Cruz sulks in his tent during this campaign, by 2020 many will have forgotten about him. If he gives a speech that overshadows Trump he will create a reputation that will only grow over the next four years.
