Well, here we go folks…will this be “it?” Or is there a giant surprise we’re all missing?
Politico says, Ted Cruz teased a “major announcement” Wednesday as he proclaimed he will continue fighting despite Donald Trump’s decisive wins Tuesday night.
The Texas senator told reporters in Indianapolis he would be making his announcement at the Pan Am Pavilion on Wednesday afternoon.
“So I encourage folks to come join us at 4 p.m.,” Cruz said. “Hope to see all of y’all there.”
Fielding questions about whether he will name his vice presidential running mate — his campaign has begun vetting potential vice presidential picks, including former Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina — Cruz wouldn’t say.
“If we were making an announcement at 4 p.m., then it wouldn’t make sense to announce it at 10 a.m.,” he said. “And so the entire purpose of this is you guys should come, and at 4 p.m. you can find out what the major announcement will be.”
Is the writing on the wall? Last night Donald Trump said “it’s over” and proclaimed himself the presumptive nominee. It’s now mathematically impossible for Cruz to amass the necessary 1,237 delegates at the convention. So his only hope would seem to be a highly contested fight in Cleveland.
As Col. West already said today, The question is, why are Ted Cruz and John Kasich still in this contest? And honestly, I think they’re struggling to convince themselves as to why they’re still there. Y’all may get your dander up about my saying so, but save your angst.
I guess we may find out soon enough.
