Cruz supporters — OK we get it, Ted Cruz is innocent as apple pie. The question is: will the Evangelical voters who have not voted yet across the country BUY hid tactics against the evangelical loving Dr Ben Carson ?
I believe Cruz just damaged himself with evangelicals across the country. You don’t want LIAR added to your name because it won’t come off for a long time.
You don’t have to like Rove or think he’s on your side before you can admit that he’s correct in this instance. If it makes you feel better, Rove will probably say something stupid a week from now, and we’ll all be back to loathing him.
From the Gateway Pundit:
“The Cruz Campaign, Spence Rogers, sends out a tweet. And the tweet is headlined, “Press says that Carson is going to take a break”… so tell all the Carson people to campaign with Cruz… At 7:53 the Carson people send out a release saying, “We’re here. We’re staying in the race. We’re going to New Hampshire and South Carolina.” And at 8:20 the national co-chairman of the Cruz campaign, Steve King, sends out a tweet saying, “It looks like Carson is getting out of the race.” Now they knew at this point that this was inaccurate.
“Senator Cruz in his initial explanation about this said we were sending it to our team, leaving the implication, I suspect, to most viewers, that this had to do with sending it out to staff members. No, no, no… They sent this to their nearly 1,500 precinct captains. There are 1,500 precincts in the state. And they sent this message from Spence Roberts (Rogers). Now why does that matter. Now the gap between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz is 6,239 votes. There are 1,500 precincts. Do the math… If that message cost Carson four votes per precinct to switch to Cruz, then Cruz beats Trump. If he doesn’t switch four, then he loses.
This isn’t looking good for Cruz no matter how you cut it:
