Thanks to the excellence of “New York Values,” Ted Cruz, the Canadian born Republican Senator for Texas, has absolutely no mathematical way of getting the 1237 delegates necessary to win the Republican nomination. His only hope now is for the Republican establishment to hand him the prize at a contested convention.
Cruz was shut out from winning any delegates in Tuesday’s New York primary, while Trump won at least 89 of the 95 delegates at stake and Kasich won three, according to the AP.
Cruz acknowledged Wednesday that a contested convention is his only path to the GOP nomination.
“We are headed to a contested convention at this point. Nobody is getting 1,237,” Cruz said in an interview with Philadelphia radio host Chris Stigall. “Donald is going to talk all the time about other folks not getting 1,237. He’s not getting there either. Neither of us are getting the 1,237.”
