Texas Senator Ted Cruz is dismissing charges from the Trump campaign that his recent delegate victories in states like Colorado and Wyoming are a result of an unfair and arcane primary system. In a interview on The Sean Hannity Show, Cruz accused the Trump campaign pushing a narrative that claims that the primary system is rigged.
“All of this noise and complaining and whining has come from the Trump campaign because they don’t like the fact that they’ve lost five election in a row,” Cruz said on Tuesday. The Texas Senator noted that 1.3 million people have participated in the recent contests despite some calling them ‘voteless elections’.
“Republicans are uniting behind our campaigns so they are screaming on Drudge–and it’s getting echoed–this notion of ‘voteless elections’ it is nonsense,” Cruz said.
Cruz credited his grassroots support with his recent string of successes. He also explained that Trump’s loss is not a result of skulduggery on the part of his campaign, but on a lack of organizational skill from Trump’s.
“Donald Trump’s campaign does not know how to organize on the grassroots, and so when the delegates are elected the real conservative activists show up, they elect delegates and we are winning those elections over and over and over again,” Senator Cruz explained to Sean. “I cannot help that the Donald Trump campaign does not seem capable of running a lemonade stand.”
“If you lose, don’t cry about it, go back and learn how to win an election,” Cruz added.
