• Ted Cruz: Donald Trump Won’t Be The GOP Nominee

    Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said in an interview set to air on WABC-AM on Sunday that he believed that the current front-runner Donald Trump will not ultimately prevail and be his party’s nominee.

    WABC’s Rita Cosby asked Cruz whether he believed he could beat Trump based on his principles.

    Cruz explained why Trump’s current supporters will find eventually support his candidacy because of his record going up against Washington.

    “[I] think in time I don’t believe Donald is going to be the nominee and I think in time the lion’s share of his supporters end up with us,” Cruz said. “The reason is what I was just saying, that if you look to the records of all the Republican candidates there’s a big difference between my record and that of everyone else if you ask, who has stood up to Washington?

    Cruz said Trump has actually helped his campaign.

    “I’ll note, you know I think the most beneficial thing Donald Trump’s involvement in the race has been, I think his involvement has been tremendously helpful to my campaign, because it’s framed the central question of this primary,” he said. “As who will stand up to Washington? And if that’s the central question, the natural next question, that any voter will ask is okay, well who actually has stood up to Washington? Who has a record in that regard?”
