There’s a really interesting fact that’s buried in an article about Cruz not spurning the “Never Trump” effort even after accepting a speaking gig at the convention.
Cruz’s team is drafting a convention speech that will focus on adherence to the Constitution, a calling card for conservatives and a potential contrast with Trump.
“Cruz will be a voice and a representative for the conservative movement that he has always championed and long been a leader of,” said Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier. “Our country is facing enormous challenges, and conservatives should not shy away from defending the principles we believe in and charting a better path forward.”
Yet Trump’s team maintains the right to approve — and re-write — Cruz’s remarks in what is expected to be a carefully scripted convention. The speech will be among the week’s most closely watched moments.
Wow. Paranoid much? I guess he should be, but this doesn’t matter anyway because Cruz is known for giving great speeches without any notes whatsoever – if he wants to spring a surprise anti-Trump speech at the convention, they won’t be able to stop him…
