This has gone on long enough. It is no longer funny. It is no longer a joke. The direction things are heading, Donald Trump is all but certain to be the Republican nominee for President. That is, as long as you and Ted Cruz remain in the race as competitors. So I am calling for a united ticket beginning Wednesday morning – the Cruz-Rubio ticket, yes with you Senator Rubio as the Vice Presidential choice. You might balk at that, but please read on before deleting.
For transparency sake, let me say my choice for President is Ted Cruz. I am from Florida. I met you Senator Rubio while you were campaigning in 2010 and in the words of Donald Trump was a YUGE fan. I have your National Review cover signed and framed above my desk. I told you (as I am sure many others did) that you will be running for President next. I also told my father that if you cannot trust Marco Rubio, who can you trust in DC? And let me also say that I, like many others have felt betrayed by you. Having said all that, let me tell you why joining Ted Cruz is in your best interest, contrary to what your financial backers may tell you.
Let’s start with the reality of the situation. Trump is far ahead of both you and Cruz is in this race with no signs of stopping. It seems pretty clear that the only way to defeat him is for either you or Cruz to bow out, but neither of you will because you are playing some high stakes chicken. But the reality is that Cruz is going to come out Wednesday morning having won his home state and with considerable more delegates than you. Is it fair that Texas is two weeks before Florida? Maybe not, but it does not really matter at this point.
