Ted Cruz Campaign Polled on Cruz-Rubio 'Unity Ticket'

In an effort to take down Donald Trump, Ted Cruz's campaign has been polling voters to see if a Cruz-Rubio "unity ticket" would work. This is despite the fact that Cruz says he hasn't talked to Rubio about joining forces.

It was reported that Sen. Mike Lee was trying to bring his two Senate friends together under one ticket before endorsing Cruz in Florida. A week before Florida's primary, Lee had gently suggested that Rubio leave the race. Lee said, "I do encourage him to get behind Ted Cruz."

Rubio then lost Florida to Donald Trump by almost 20 points. Cruz supporter Doug Deason, son of billionaire donor Darwin Deason, also tried to get them together. Deason told Politico, "Rubio was too pompous to act on it. He believed his own internal polls and there was no swaying him away from staying in the race through the Florida primary. If he had signed on before the first Super Tuesday, Cruz would have won all of the Texas votes and a lot more delegates." Deason went on to say, "They may have very well won Florida."

Yet, Rubio announced, "I'm not going to be anybody's vice president." On CNN, Wolf Blitzer brought up the pairing. Ted Cruz said, "Listen, people write all sorts of things in the media. And I think very, very highly of Marco. Marco is a friend. He's talented. He's an incredible communicator. And he inspired millions in this campaign."

Blitzer pointed out that it sounded like Cruz was endorsing the ticket. Cruz said, "Listen, we welcome Marco's supporters with open arms, and I would enthusiastically welcome Marco's support. I think very, very highly of him."
