Poll Context: Ted Cruz just lost BIG TIME in the North East and is now heading for Indiana with his alliance with John Kasich in his back pocket. Ted Cruz is known for his dirty tricks and the schmoozing of delegates so do you suspect dirty tricks will appear again? You may remember that Cruz won 19 out of 20 of Maine’s Republican delegates during the state’s GOP convention Saturday, but before the vote, Maine Gov. Paul LePage accused the Cruz campaign of going back on a promise to back a “unity slate” of the state’s delegates, a move he portrayed as,
“stabbing us in the back.”
In a statement, LePage said,
“We reached a deal with Cruz’s national campaign to put up a unity slate that would honor the wishes of the thousands of Mainers who voted at caucus. But Cruz’s Northeast Political Director David Sawyer lied to us and broke the deal. Sawyer stabbed us in the back, reneged on the unity slate, and betrayed the people of Maine.”
Can Ted Cruz be trusted?
