Once Republicans reach the party convention in Cleveland, the party will begin to sell off Donald Trump, a top spokesman for Ted Cruz’s campaign said Monday.
While acknowledging that Trump and Cruz “will receive every single delegate that they’re entitled to on the first ballot at the convention,” national spokesman Ron Nehring predicted that Trump would not reach the 1,237 necessary to clinch the nomination on the first ballot.
“On second ballot, it’s going to be up to Ted Cruz to put together a majority of the delegates, and I believe that after the first ballot you will see the biggest run of on Donald Trump stock since Enron,” Nehring said in an interview with Fox News. “And people will abandon him like crazy because they will recognize that, what people already recognize: If Donald Trump is nominee, this party is headed to wipeout of biblical proportions. Republican activists who are volunteers and delegates don’t want to see that happen.”
