If you were still looking for who the real outsider in this race is, at this point it has to be Donald Trump. Ted Cruz has hired Neil Bush to help run his campaign. So look for more sophisticated and high level dirty tricks. And there’s a rumor floating around that brother Jeb has some leftover campaign cash he plans to share with team Cruz.
Cruz will appear more moderate on the campaign trail as he tries to overtake Marco Rubio in Florida and John Kasich in Ohio. Neither state has warmed to the televangelist-politician who may not even be eligible to run for the highest office in the land. But the establishment has 145 million dollars that they plan to dump on anyone or anything that can stop Donald Trump. The people be damned.
And today Cruz received the endorsement of Carly Fiorina. Cruz and Fiorina are a perfect match. They revel in smarmy, self indulgent attacks on Donald Trump. And like Neil Bush, Carly Fiorina is an inside the beltway McCain republican who shifts political shape to fit the audience she is in front of. Cruz may even name her as veep if the campaign picks up more steam.
For all of you conservative talk radio type people who are still trying to convince Trump supporters that Cruz is like Donald Trump, you are making fools of yourselves. Donald has never been a politician until he entered the fray last summer. By hiring both Bush and Fiorina, Cruz proves once and for all he’ll do or say anything to be president. Trump supporters knew this all along. For all it’s keen insight, conservative talk radio seems tone deaf to Cruz’s establishment credentials.
