Failed presidential candidate Ted Cruz's wife Heidi was quickly escorted from the Republican National Convention floor Wednesday night as baying crowds closed in after her husband refused to endorse Donald Trump.
The Texas Senator addressed the millions of Americans sitting at home and told them to 'speak and vote your conscience' – prompting his own supporters to cheer, while some pro-Trump delegates yelled out in disgust.
Some on the floor in Cleveland, Ohio and others seated in the stands began yelling 'Trump, Trump Trump' to shout down pro-Cruz forces.
Trump, who will represent the party in the November 8 election against presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, made his entrance to the convention hall near the end of Cruz's speech, applauding Cruz's remarks but distracting the crowd from his former rival.
Video footage has emerged showing Cruz's wife being led out of the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland when the crowd turned on him.
