Ted Cruz is down to his last ounce of hope to become President of the United States but it may all be for nothing.
The Cruz campaign has to make a stand in Indiana to stop Trump or all hope will be lost. Everything from the messaging to the Tweets need to be perfect, because they can’t risk any mistakes.
Apparently Heidi Cruz didn’t get that message.
Speaking at a campaign stop in Indiana, Ted’s wife hit the trail to speak about how great her husband is and why he should be President.
One of the qualities that she finds most impressive is that Ted is an immigrant.
“Ted is an immigrant. He is Hispanic.”
Not only did she put the emphasis on the word “is”, but she may have ruined his whole campaign in the process.
Ted Cruz was born in Canada to a Cuban father, but is an American citizen by birth. Donald Trump is not the only one to bring up the fact that Cruz was born in Canada and is not allowed to run for president.
Although many legal experts think that the law qualifies Ted as being able to run for president, but not all of them.
Hardly ever in our history has there been a question about the legitimacy of a presidential candidate. Ironically it was also Donald Trump who brought up similar questions about Obama in 2008.
The issue has never made it to court and it is widely held that Cruz is eligible, but making statements saying Ted is an immigrant could put it all in doubt again. And any doubt leading up to Indiana is not good.
