This Surrender Deal Is Only Going to Hurt Ted Cruz

I realize Ken Cuccinelli thinks he does not have 28 votes on the Rules Committee to unbind the delegates, but having him lead up negotiations to scuttle the unbinding is only going to hurt Ted Cruz.

It already looks to some activists like Cruz is doing this for self-preservation even though my understanding is that he has nothing to do with it. Cruz has enough enemies in the party and media that they will work in concert to claim Cooch was just operating on Cruz’s behalf.

Cuccinelli, you will recall, has been working for the Cruz campaign.

That’s insanity. I’m already seeing the tweets that this is just a plot to benefit Cruz in 2020.

The delegates need to stand and fight. They’re causing more harm by trying to negotiate their surrender.
