Ted Cruz: ‘Every Vote For Donald Trump Is A Vote For Hillary Clinton’

Republicans who support Donald Trump are helping Democrat Hillary Clinton become the next president, GOP candidate Ted Cruz declared on Wednesday.

“We have got to win, and if Donald Trump is the nominee, it elects Hillary Clinton,” the Texas senator said on Chris Stigall’s radio program on WPHT-AM in Philadelphia. “Every vote for Donald Trump is a vote for Hillary Clinton. You might as well put a Hillary sticker on your car because Hillary wins by double digits against Donald Trump.”

Cruz added: “I beat Hillary in the election, and that’s why Republicans are coming together and are uniting behind a positive, optimistic message to bring back jobs and economic growth, to defend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and to keep America safe and defeat radical Islamic terrorists.”

RealClearPolitics reported that Stigall challenged Cruz for having called Sean Hannity a “Trumpkin” after the Fox News host criticized the GOP’s method of allocating national-convention delegates. Trump argues that, based on his wins in the most of the primaries, he should be farther ahead of his rivals.

Stigall told Cruz: “The delegate process, I’m not going to get into it. But I do want to say, I think this primary fight has done thing that is very positive. We’re all paying attention to the way the system works. I know people are screaming it is not fair, I don’t see that you’re doing anything unfair. I see how it is tricky or it is not particularly clear. But it is not unfair. … What do you say to Republican primary voters who don’t like what is going on?”

The senator did not respond, according to RealClearPolitics.
