Pathetic – Ted Cruz and John Kasich Announce Joint “Never Voters Campaign” To Stop Donald Trump…

After the complete Trump New York victory, both Ted Cruz and John Kasich were mathematically eliminated from any possibility of winning through voters.  The #NeverTrump campaign shifted and rebranded itself #NeverVoters.

Last night, facing the looming probability of complete defeat on April 26th in the North East primary states of: Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maryland and Delaware, the Ted Cruz and John Kasich campaigns announced publicly their intents to draw their last-hope firewalls in Indiana, New Mexico and Oregon.

The most current polling of Pennsylvania looks like this:

3 candidate Pennsylvania Poll - 4-24-16

(full pdf of results here)… and the Trump campaign has also ramped up the voter information for the unbound PA delegates (SEE HERE) turning the tide of in favor of Team Donald Trump in the Keystone State.

As a direct consequence of the growing support for candidate Trump, and with looming electoral defeat on the horizon, the Ted Cruz campaign now places all its “never voter” efforts on stopping Donald Trump from winning Indiana.  However, Donald Trump is also polling ahead of Cruz in Indiana – so the Cruz campaign approach throws a Hail-Mary.

In an effort to improve fleeting chances, Team Cruz has struck a deal with the Kasich campaign.   Team Kasich is to pull out of Indiana, and Team Cruz will give them free reign in New Mexico and Oregon.

From the desperate campaign of Ted Cruz:

cruz bum[…]  “our campaign will focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Gov. Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico, and we would hope that allies of both campaigns would follow our lead. In other states holding their elections for the remainder of the primary season, our campaign will continue to compete vigorously to win.”  (link)

The campaign of John Kasich agrees to the strategy and announces they are withdrawing from the Indiana contest and will focus their efforts on New Mexico and Oregon as requested:

Kasich never voters 1

 

Included in the Kasich announcement is a request to the Super-PAC’s spending on behalf of both ‘never voter’ candidates:

cruz kasich“We would expect independent third-party groups to do the same and honor the commitments made by the Cruz and Kasich campaigns”.

So the Cruz and Kasich campaigns are committed to each other, and both jointly committed to the ‘Never Voter’ mission.  Interestingly, for Team Cruz to give up Oregon they must have internal feedback from private polling showing their chances were diminishing rapidly.

    Not sure how I got on Booger eaters e-mail list but this is beyond pathetic.

    First Name,

    Violent rallies, verbal assaults, social media intimidation, personal harassment…and now DEATH THREATS:

    Vote Trump Or Else: Roger Stone Threatens Angry Trump Fans To Visit Delegate HOTEL ROOMS – Red State

    Delegates face death threats from Trump supporters – Politico

    GOPers face Wave of Threats from Trump Fans Incensed by Delegate Counts – Talking Points Memo

    If you don’t support Donald Trump — and you have the guts to speak out against him — you are a prime target of Donald Trump and his henchman.

    That’s why I’ve asked my campaign to establish a Delegate Defense Fund — and I’m asking you to help me fund it.

    DELEGATE DEFENSE FUND »

    Here’s the simple truth: instead of playing by the rules, Donald Trump and his allies have decided their best path to power is to intimidate opponents and harass our delegates.

    What does it say about Donald Trump that we have to set campaigning aside — and build a fund to defend good and decent people from Trump’s campaign and his bullies?

    From Colorado to Indiana to Delaware — Donald Trump’s campaign and supporters are preparing an all-out war on Republican delegates.

    So, I’m creating the Delegate Defense Fund — to support any delegates and alternates who finds themselves under attack from Donald Trump and his political bullies.

    First Name, to make this happen — and give intimidated and harassed delegates the help and support they need — I’m asking you to immediately respond to this email.

    That’s why I’m putting together the Delegate Defense Fund; I need your immediate financial help to raise $500,000 — and we have to raise it IMMEDIATELY!

    Click one of the secure buttons below to donate directly to the Delegate Defense Fund:

    (if your payment information has been saved — your contribution will go through immediately).

    DELEGATE DEFENSE FUND: Instant Donate $250

    DELEGATE DEFENSE FUND: Instant Donate $500

    DELEGATE DEFENSE FUND: Donate A Different Amount

    I cannot overstate the importance of this mission.

    Trump henchman Roger Stone has even promised to disclose the hotels and the room numbers of delegates who are willing to stand up and vote against Donald Trump.

    The threats are so serious, that part of the convention plan now has to include security at the hotel of every delegate!

    That is why we must work quickly to secure the funds and provide this resource — before it’s too late!

    The Delegate Defense Fund will keep delegates updated with timely information regarding threats to their safety and ensure that our campaign is able to protect the integrity of our party and the nominating process.

    Those of us who play by the rules, stick to our principles and fight hard to defend liberty and freedom do not deserve to be attacked by Donald trump and his goon squad.

    If you agree, will you make an immediate contribution to my Delegate Defense Fund?

    (if your payment information has been saved — your contribution will go through immediately).
    I need your immediate help to ensure I can support and defend delegates who have been elected…and will be elected in the next few weeks.
    First Name, can I count on you to help?

    For your help, I will rush you your very own Deputy Delegate card.

    For liberty,
    Ted Cruz
    Ted Cruz

    P.S. The future of our nation — and the world — is on the line in this 2016 presidential election. We must make sure Donald Trump is not able to threaten, intimidate, and buy his way to the nomination. If you agree, will you please stop now and make an immediate contribution to my Delegate Defense Fund?

      Looks as though Cruz is literally running out of ways to raise money….Hence this truely desperate tactic.

      On a lark, I’d say, don’t be afraid to show your “support”. Click on the “donate a different amount”, and contribute $0.10 (YEP…A DIME…) after transaction fees are taken into account, that should net about a -$2.00 or so (negative amount) to the cause.

      If say, 100,000 “supporters” did something to that effect the fund would generate negative $200,000…….

      Not that I am advocating any such thing but it would be the ultra Karma.

      And, you get a Deputy Delegate Card to boot……Be sure to sign it & keep it on your person at all times….LOL

      It works on some people — or rather it works on some people who have been softened up by Cruz’ media/blogger toadies. …they’ve been calling down “Jayzus and all his rahteous Christians” today too that Messiah Ted shall be carried to the promised land by “the only true patriot conservative moral people in ‘merica! over the evil Trumpkins” (which is one of the reasons why I started hating the disgusting panderers long ago…do those jackwagons dogwhistle enough? yes, I think they do — and in a most grotesque and insipid fashion…out! out! out! with them!).
      And no, I’m not hyperbolizing much what has been said in the last 36 or so hours by those folks; I wish I was, but I’m not. They have truly gone ’round the bend this year; fortunately it appears as though some of their regulars are starting to talk back to them however. This is a good and hopeful thing, as it shows people do still have their wits about them.

    Cruz and Kasich campaigns are running out of money.
    This is just a ploy to cut their campaign costs. If they
    wished to deny Trump delegates, they would each
    campaign hard in all states. They no longer have the
    money to do that. Cruz’s usual tortured reasoning is
    pure comedy.

      Pam, one small paragraph in your article, is really interesting to me
      “Charles R. Black Jr., an adviser to Mr. Kasich, said it would be helpful to his candidate — and “a big blow to Trump” — for Mr. Cruz to win Indiana. The point of announcing the deal, Mr. Black said, was to indicate to outside “super PACs” where the campaigns and candidates were marshaling their resources.”

      Charles R Black Jr. was also advisor to the John McCain campaign and was involved with squelching the rumors surrounding McCain. (see motherjones for paramour connection)

      Charles R Black Jr. is a powerful lobbyist.

      Charles R Black is currently the Chairman of the Prime Policy Group. The Prime Policy Group website (prime-policydot come) describes their mission as such: “We solve problems and Build Brands with powerful relationships, policy expertise & capabilities on Capital Hill & Beyond.”

    H3LL I’m still trying to figure out if Kasich is even on the Oregon ballot. Kasich isn’t in the Oregon Voters’ Pamphlet that they sent out to Oregon Voters.
    Since Lyin’ Ted & 1 for 38 Kasich have joined together in order to get delegates not necessarily votes to stop Trump it is Very evident that they mean to keep DC Business as Usual
    Come on guys do you really think that if either of these two manage to cheat their way onto General Election Ticket at the GOP convention that they are going to win in November. Hate to tell the Cruz and/or Kasich people that stealing, buying and bribing Republican delegates does not equate into votes in November. It actually equates into a landslide for the Democratic party.

    The Cruz-Kasich alliance looked in terms of “narratives.” Either trying to change “the narrative is that Trump’s already won this.” Or that the alliance “reinforces Trump’s narrative” that the system is rigged.

    But are they just narratives when they are true? Is reality just a narrative?

    It is for the left and their media people which is why they try to control it. The narrative is the magic incantation which makes all their wishes and dreams come true, until it doesn’t.

    There’s a local talk show in OR by Lars Larsen. He said that Kashich is not in the voters pamphlet! He is on the ballot. Most folks look at the voters pamphlet, which makes me think he’s really not serious about Oregon.

      From the article:

      This development will add to the pressure facing the anti-Trump movement. Both Cruz and Kasich have called each other spoilers in their efforts to peel away delegates. If Kasich leaves Indiana, Cruz will be left without an excuse if he loses there.

      The announcement of the alliance seems to suggest Cruz was concerned about his chances in the Hoosier State. Three polls last week found Trump leading the field by an average of six points. Cruz would easily close that gap if he won all of Kasich’s voters. But the math isn’t quite that simple. Some of Kasich’s voters might go to Trump and others might stay home. Also, some Kasich supporters might have already cast their ballots for him – early voting started on April 5.

      But perhaps most importantly, if Kasich fails to coordinate effectively with Cruz (for example, if Kasich continues to tell Indiana constituents to vote for him despite saying he’s pulled out of the Indiana primary), it could confuse voters and make strategic voting more difficult. And while this alliance might be designed to more effectively marshal outside resources for both campaigns, the success of the partnership will ultimately hinge on whether enough voters coalesce around Cruz.
