Huckabee: Cruz “Childish” For Suggesting I Drop Out So Conservatives Can Unify
posted on Jan. 8, 2016, at 12:56 p.m.

Mike Huckabee said Thursday that it’s “rather childish” for Ted Cruz to suggest candidates drop out of the race to ensure the conservative voice isn’t splintered.

Iowa radio host Simon Conway said Cruz’s warning that a split in the conservative vote would allowing a moderate Republican to win the nomination could be directed at Huckabee and Santorum.

Huckabee replied, “Well, I mean, that is certainly something he is going to want to say, but my question would be, why not rally around me? Why not rally around Rick Santorum?”

“I mean when one candidate starts telling other candidates where they should be in this race, I’m just thinking, frankly, you’re not the reason I got into the race, and you’re not going to be the reason I get out, it to me sounds rather childish to start telling people that they ought to get out of the race, to make room for someone else,” the former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate said.

Huckabee added, “I just know that we’re getting good reactions where we go, and I know that before Christmas we polled 5,000 people in Iowa and 75 percent of whom said they haven’t made up their minds and Simon you’ve been around this process long enough, as his I and I know this, that Iowans just don’t make up their minds with analyses until it’s close to the caucus.”

The article:


"Do you think [Cruz] may have some internal polling that is suggesting a problem?"

The very good, full audio interview:

Trump may benefit from Cruz' presumption that all us Evangelicals should just get behind his campaign because he happens to be polling well at the moment. I don't think I'm alone in feeling like I might pull the lever for Trump just to poke a hole in that theory if it happens to come down between those two.

Most people believe what they see, the Left see's what it believes.....

My fear is that in the long run Cruz may prove to be detrimental to the cause of social conservatives (just like Obama will be leaving the democrat party in shambles, it seems at the moment). Prove me wrong, but he doesn't seem to be a social conservative at heart, primarily.

He is no fool, who gives what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose. -Jim Elliot
