Mitt Romney threw his support behind Ted Cruz today, maybe for all the wrong reasons, but he did!
In doing so, he totally threw John Richard Kasich under the bus.
Today. Mitt Romney posted the following:
This week, in the Utah nominating caucus, I will vote for Senator Ted Cruz.
Today, there is a contest between Trumpism and Republicanism. Through the calculated statements of its leader, Trumpism has become associated with racism, misogyny, bigotry, xenophobia, vulgarity and, most recently, threats and violence. I am repulsed by each and every one of these.
The only path that remains to nominate a Republican rather than Mr. Trump is to have an open convention. At this stage, the only way we can reach an open convention is for Senator Cruz to be successful in as many of the remaining nominating elections as possible.
I like Governor John Kasich. I have campaigned with him. He has a solid record as governor. I would have voted for him in Ohio. But a vote for Governor Kasich in future contests makes it extremely likely that Trumpism would prevail.
I will vote for Senator Cruz and I encourage others to do so as well, so that we can have an open convention and nominate a Republican.
Although the verdict is not out as to whether this either helps or hurts the situation or Ted Cruz, he definitely threw John Kasich under the bus. It is high time for Kasich to go. He at this point has ZERO chance of winning.
And in case you missed it, my latest on Kasich! You do not want to miss this:
I agree with Mitt! Vote for Ted Cruz!
…a vote for Governor Kasich in future contests makes it extremely likely that Trumpism would prevail.
