Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) says that if the Republican establishment has a brokered convention to “steal the nomination from the people” it would “cause a revolt.”

“If the Washington deal-makers try to steal the nomination from the people, I think it would be a disaster. It would cause a revolt,” Cruz told reporters in Orono, Maine, according to the Washington Times.

Instead, the answer is real simple. We’ve got to win this nomination. I’m the only candidate who has the delegate count, who has the state wins, who is in a position to beat Donald Trump. And if you want to beat Donald Trump, the way to do it is to come together behind this campaign.

Cruz also spoke directly to voters who are currently supporting rival Donald Trump.
“Let me speak for a minute to the Donald Trump supporters,” Cruz said said. “I get that people are angry. We are so frustrated. We are so furious because we’ve been lied to. We’ve been lied to over and over and over again.”
But Donald Trump embodies that Washington corruption that we are angry about. The answer to that corruption is not go with someone who has been funding liberal Democrats for decades, who has been enmeshed in that corruption.
