This has to be a big blow for Cruz; Lee (and that Sessions guy he can’t stop talking about) are his best friends in the Senate. Why is Ted’s best friend going to campaign with Marco? Probably because Marco has the best chance of taking down Donald. I’ve read from some Cruz supporters that Ted has a better chance at knocking down Donald but this is nonsense: Ted’s last “home game” is on March 1, in PROPORTIONAL states. Even if he wins these (which outside of Texas is no guarantee), he’ll not have enough delegates to overcome the winner-take-all states like Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and California, which Rubio has a much better chance of winning.
