Officials from Ted Cruz’s defunct presidential campaign are talking up the possibility of a coup at next month’s Republican convention in Cleveland.
Bob Vander Plaats, a former national co-chair of Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign, told NBC that “everything’s got to be on the table” when it comes to exempting delegates from supporting Donald Trump at the convention.
On Tuesday, Cruz’s New Jersey state director Steve Lonegan called for a “delegate revolt.”
“I would love to see a revolt,” he told CNN. “It’s time for the Republican Party to get some backbone and stand up against this guy.”
“You can end this and it’s on you to do so. The rules permit you to do so,” Deace said addressing the delegates via his radio show. “You have a choice to make: You can suffer the wrath of Trump’s cult now, or you can suffer the wrath of the American voter later.”
