Senator Cruz is gaining support in California in advance of the June primary. If Donald Trump cannot win 1,237 delegates, Senator Cruz stands a better chance of securing the nomination at the RNC convention. Conventional wisdom suggests that the California primary will determine whether the RNC Cleveland event will be a coronation or a convention. As Trump plays to the media, the Cruz campaign collects delegates with its guerrilla campaign strategy.
The Cruz campaign is steeling for a battle in California. Tonight’s rally, and its impressive list of endorsements, suggests that San Diego County is Cruz country– we’ll know if it works in 7 weeks.
Cruz, Isn’t that the guy who held multiple events with a preacher who believes that all homosexuals should be executed ? And no, I’m not kidding.
Sen. Cruz was pretty light on his feet at Town & Country. Aides told me the crowd, including spillover into foyer, was 1,700-2,000.
For “Alistair,” the Internet troll, whose comment we just removed…
Nowhere does this post say that the Republican Party of San Diego County endorsed Ted Cruz. The Party in fact has not endorsed any candidate. That is what the presidential primary process does.
These are Republicans who have individually endorsed Cruz.
For the record, yes, we do remove comments in violation of our rules. Those include rules against name calling and unsubstantiated allegations. One would have to know the definition of censorship to make a credible charge in that regard. For a private site that gives very free rein in most areas, our policies are very much like that used by major newspapers in disallowing some illegitimate comments from their sites.
“Commenters of all political persuasions are invited to comment and debate on the blog. The general rules are that commenters should be respectful, deal in issues instead of personalities, and stick to the topic. Foul language and name-calling will not be tolerated.”
This is straight from your own website. In that case you violated your own policy by calling me a “Troll”, perhaps we need to censor you.
Furthermore, “faceless men” is not a personal attack, but to elevate the discussion that many of the decisions that affect Americans are being made via back room deals — thus marginalizing the power of democracy. You should look up the term faceless men if you knew anything about Australian politics, Thor.
I don’t see where any reference was made to the Republican Party of San Diego County, the California Republican Party, or the Republican National Committee in this article.
If I am mistaken, please point it out.
You left Kevin Faulconer off the list!
The California Republican Assembly (CRA), the grassroots, Republican, conservative volunteer organization, was very pleased to endorse Senator Ted Cruz for president!
