This is a stunning statement from NBA’s Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who weighed in on the GOP Presidential candidates with Fox News Neal Cavuto.
Cuban at one time was considering running for President, so we’re not sure if he’s playing politics right now, but he will anger a lot of Cruz supporters with this declaration:
“You were asked who you like in this race. I think you said ABC — anybody but Cruz,” Cavuto said at the outset of the segment. “You were referring to Ted Cruz . So does the mean you are open on Donald Trump?”
Cuban said he was open to voting for Trump, but confirmed he would not cast a vote for Cruz, one of his home senators.
“I’ll consider anybody but Ted Cruz,” the billionaire investor said.
He later explained, “People are tired of labels. That’s one of the reasons I don’t like Ted Cruz. Everything he says is defined by some label.”
“When you look at a list of candidates on both sides of the aisle and you say, ‘Have any of them really accomplished anything?’ The answer is no,” Cuban said. “So when you look at Donald, you say, ‘You know what? I may not agree with his policies …’ And I’ve said this directly to him: ‘Donald, I don’t agree with a lot of what you’re saying, but at least you’re the one person who’s been able to go out there and get something done and show some accomplishment in their life other than this bill or that bill passed or stopped.’ So I think people recognize that he’s accomplished things and they’re rallying behind that.”

I wouldn’t call this anything important only that a Texas billionaire has decided he wasn’t going to support a fellow Texan. What are your feelings about this public statement? Will this give anyone pause on Cruz’s future campaign?
