Remember, I asked you to watch for endorsements by the shills as they drop out. This is because any delegates they have earned along the way go to the endorsee. It reveals the GOPe (e=establishment) pre-selected “nominee” for you. GOPe vote splitter candidate Carly Fiorina endorsed Ted Cruz today.
“There are some people in our party saying Donald Trump isn’t so bad … but he’s a deal maker; he can make deals. The truth is Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are two sides of the same coin. They’re not going to reform the system, they are the system,” she said.“
Says Fiorina….as she endorses an incumbent U.S. Senator. Ah yes, the Ron Paul Treatment™. We know it well. Say they aren’t a Republican, say a vote for them is a vote for Democrats, make up a new name to call them so you never refer to them as Republican, etc.
The Tennessee Republican primary ballot revealed that Fiorina was merely a shill campaign with only two at-large delegates to choose from – and one of those an incumbent state representative. I.e., if you used all 14 of your at-large votes then 86% of your delegate vote had to be for someone else. The GOPe must cover their bases in the proportionally awarded delegate states and ensure they have placed sufficient connected party faithful with all candidates they expect to earn delegates on primary day. Just study the committed delegate names a little. You’ll see what I mean. Note to Jerome Moon: your services will no longer be required per Roger Ailes.
Well, it isn’t easy maintaining a pretend campaign (and there were several of them) for president and pay for keeping up appearances through February, but this shill campaign has had to wait until after Super Tuesday to cough up their earned delegate (as in she only has one) since Single Digit Jeb! was failed Plan A and Rubio/Cruz was Plan B. And, since Fox News chief Roger Ailes has declared “we can’t do the Rubio thing any more”, the only choice remaining is to give the delegate….uh, I mean endorsement, to Cruz.
But maybe the question Cruz supporters should be asking/answering is:
“The Cruz PAC raised just over eleven million dollars by the end of June, nearly all of it from a Robert Mercer, a Wall Street hedge fund manager. The $500,000 donation to CARLY for America is its largest expenditure to date. The remainder of the $36,169 it spent went to polling research and legal fees.”
