Republican nominee Donald Trump has received endorsements of former primary competitors at the Republican National Convention, with the exception of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Cruz who today defended his position to refuse to endorse Trump.
It’s been reported that Cruz said he’s not in the habit of backing politicians who attack his family.
“I am not in the habit of supporting people who attack my wife and attack my father,” Cruz said at a morning meeting where he faced sharp questions from the Texas delegation in Cleveland, CNN reported. The Texas senator sensationally withheld an endorsement of Trump in his speech Wednesday, earning a chorus of boos from the floor while getting upstaged in a power play by the GOP nominee himself.
