In what may or may not be an indication of what we can expect when Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) steps on stage on this third night of the Republican National Convention, some of his supporters greeted Donald Trump's plane with boos as it flew into Cleveland on Wednesday afternoon.
Cruz was speaking at a rally outside of the Quicken Loans Arena when his audience spotted the Trump aircraft. It was perfect timing, as the plane came into view just as Cruz said, "Our party now has a nominee." Cruz laughed and asked his staff if they had planned it that way.
Cruz is included in the lineup of keynote speakers for Wednesday night, despite his very nasty battle with Trump during the GOP primary. In perhaps the tensest moment of the campaign, Cruz denounced his rival as a "pathological liar."
That was in May. Now, the Texas senator will be addressing a convention that has just nominated Trump as its presidential nominee.
Reports suggest Cruz will not offer his former opponent an endorsement.
