There are more reports that Ted Cruz is getting ready to endorse the cheeto-faced vulgarian today, from lifezette:
Sources close to the Trump campaign have confirmed Cruz is close to endorsing his former — and sometimes bitter — GOP rival. Talks between Cruz staff and the Trump camp have been regular in recent weeks, and have grown more serious as Trump has closed the gap with Hillary Clinton in key battleground states.
In recent weeks, signs began to build that Cruz was doing real harm to his own political career with his reticence to get behind Trump.
If this is true, it will surely anger his fans who believed his opposition was out of principle. I’m seeing a lot of people chat about the rumors on Twitter, and they are not happy.
Those with knowledge of the ongoing discussion say logistics of the endorsement are still being discussed but that it could happen as early as Monday, ahead of the first presidential debate. Those sources noted that Cruz has become seriously concerned about the long-term threats to the Constitution and conservative priorities should Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton win the White House.
On the other hand, the Trump camp has been known to leak false stories in order to pressure people to do what they want, or to damage people. But the absence of a denial from Cruz makes us wonder…
But would this actually help Cruz in any substantive way? I have a feeling that just like everyone else, if he endorses Trump, he’ll be humiliated by Trump very soon after…
“Lifezette” isn’t terribly trustworthy, but…
source w/ direct knowledge of the situation tells me that sometime between today & tomorrow, Cruz will announce some form of support for DJT
