Who Needs Cruz Anyway?

Newt Gingrich tried to rehabilitate Ted Cruz by arguing Cruz meant to say vote for Trump when Cruz said to "vote your conscience for the candidate who will uphold the Constitution." It is interesting that Newt felt the need to translate Cruz-speak. If Newt's efforts are the result of a backstage request from the Trump campaign, they shouldn't bother. Trump doesn't need Cruz's endorsement. In fact it may help Trump in the blue states not to have Cruz's endorsement. Texas is already in the bag for Trump, so Cruz is irrelevant for Trump to win Cruz's home state in November.Cruz's debacle at the podium tonight is just another example of how a very smart guy can exercise remarkably poor judgment.
