CLEVELAND – Thursday morning, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz met with Texas delegates and answered a woman's question why he broke his pledge to endorse. 

"The day that was abdicated was the day this became personal …" Cruz said. "I am not in the habit of supporting people who attack my wife and attack my father. And that pledge was not a blanket commitment that if you go and slander and attack Heidi that I'm going to come like a servile puppy dog and say, 'Thank you very much for maligning my wife and maligning my father.'" 

He did not mention Trump's personal attacks on himself.

  1. I used to like Cruz. But he’s proven his pettiness. Supporting the party’s nominee at this point is not about Donald Trump or Insults Cruz speaks of. It’s about a choice between two people, or rather two different directions for the Country. He should have swallowed his bruised ego and hurt feelings for that.

  2. I was a Cruz supporter, but I will not support him in the future
    What he did was totally unacceptable. He either should not have spoken or at least given brief endorsement of Trump.
    Whiner, sore loser, cry baby the list goes on!
