Lindsey Graham: Might Be Time for the GOP To Rally Around Ted Cruz

Tuesday on CBS’s special coverage of the Super Tuesday primaries, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), a former candidate for the 2016 GOP presidential nod, explained that if Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) come up short in their respective home states, then there could be a situation where he feels the party would have to rally around their opponent Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) against the Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

“Short of a major scandal, probably not,” Graham said. “And if Marco doesn’t win Florida, I don’t know how he goes forward. If Kasich loses Ohio– you know, Ted Cruz is not my favorite by any means. I don’t wish him ill. I made a joke about Ted but we may be in a position where we have to rally around Ted Cruz as the only way to stop Trump and I’m not so sure that would work.”
