The Texas senator made it clear that while his presidential bid has ended, he’s still running hard for the post of Mr. Conservative.
No, Ted Cruz is not restarting his campaign. Stop the speculation. Stop it right now.
It’s true that Senator Cruz, in his first interview after dropping out of the presidential race last week, said that he would not rule out jumping back in “if there is a path to victory.” Cruz told radio and TV host Glenn Beck he would reassess his status if somehow he wins Tuesday’s Republican primary in Nebraska.
But that’s not happening and Cruz knows it. Hot takes to the contrary are nothing but pundits behaving badly.
No kidding. Listen to when the subject comes up again at interview’s end – they all laugh. It’s a joke. Mostly.
Nor is Cruz thinking about a third-party run. He was unequivocal about that, for himself or any other anti-Trump Republican.
“I don’t think that’s very likely,” he said of a third-party bid.
That said, in the interview with Mr. Beck – a big Cruz supporter – the Texas senator made it clear that while his presidential bid has ended, he’s still running hard for the post of Mr. Conservative.
