Ted Cruz: Donald Trump Gets to Decide First

CPAC is where we always get a good feel for the next presidential candidate.

It is no secret that Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) would like another shot at the title, but he does not appear ready to jump in just yet.

During this weekend’s’ CPAC convention in Orlando, FL, Cruz seemed to make it clear that he will not make his call until Donald Trump makes his.

Trump Goes First

On this weekend’s convention, veteran Republican pollster and political consultant Frank Luntz stated, “CPAC is a good barometer of the most active grassroots of the party.

“I expect Trump to win the straw poll big, mirroring his front-runner position right now.”

He was right, as Trump won 59 percent of the poll, with Governor Ron DeSantis coming in second and everyone else being a distant afterthought.

Trump even seemed to make it pretty clear that he will run, stating, “They’re going to find out the hard way starting Nov. 8 and even more so starting November 2024.”

He added that “we’re going to kick the Biden crime family out of the White House in 2024.”

Cruz was the last man standing against Trump in 2016, but he does not appear ready to go through that again unless Trump is taken out of the equation.

The Texas Senator stated, “There’ll be plenty of time for that.

“Everybody is waiting to see what Donald Trump decides to do.

“He gets to decide first, and we will find out.

“Nobody knows what Trump will do and everyone will react accordingly.”

Even if Trump is not in the race, it still seems unlikely that Cruz would get the nod.

Ron DeSantis is the only real threat to Trump, and he is polling at about half of what Trump is right now.

For Trump supporters, the dream ticket seems to Trump-DeSantis, with a handoff to DeSantis in 2028, putting either Haley, Noem, or Scott on the ticket as his VP.

If Republicans do this right, they could possibly lock up the White House for the next 12 to 20 years.
