The marriage is over, seriously!
Earlier this week both campaigns put out news releases and statements they were working on stopping Donald Trump from winning the needed 1,237 to clinch the GOP nomination.
Now both camps are at odds because their alliance is not working. Now both are looking desperate and weak. The entire situation looks like they are trying to take advantage of the people of Indiana.
It’s clear, both of these candidates do not have a path to the 1,237 and they are failing to create a sustainable message for Americans to rally behind. The press went after Kasich on Monday morning who said “I never told people not to vote for me in Indiana,” and now Cruz, three days later says there was never a deal in place. Kasich’s people didn’t like that at all.
On Sunday, the Cruz and Kasich campaigns both issued statements announcing a strategic alliance aimed at stopping Donald Trump from reaching the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination.
“(O)ur campaign will focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Gov. Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico,” said Jeff Roe, Cruz’s campaign manager.
The idea, then, was to divide and conquer, with Cruz focusing on Indiana ahead of its May 3 primary while stepping out of Kasich’s way in Oregon and New Mexico ahead of those states’ primaries on May 17 and June 7, respectively.
In turn, Kasich would back off from competing in Indiana.
But on Thursday, Cruz seemed to frame the two campaigns’ strategies as independent maneuvering.
A cryptic tweet issued shortly after Cruz’s comments by John Weaver, Kasich’s chief strategist, seemed to take issue with Cruz’s assertion.
I can't stand liars.
