As Written by Phillip Hodges, Constitution.com:
Radio host and conservative commentator Erick Erickson has laid out what he thinks are the details of former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush’s “backroom deal” with Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, and Governor John Kasich to stop Trump.
On his website The Resurgent, Erickson writes:
Jeb Bush has a private meeting with Kasich, Cruz, and Rubio.
Cruz’s campaign, after a lot of bluster about going all in in Florida admits it was all a head fake. They had one event scheduled for today with Sean Hannity in Orlando that was previously scheduled and will be nationally focused, not Florida focused. Then Cruz is bailing on Florida. For the Rubio folks complaining, I’m told the campaign did try to make adjustments, but couldn’t for reasons not in the campaign’s control.
Cruz’s campaign takes down its Florida ads. The Cruz Super PACs follow suit allegedly — at least some of them have signaled they too are getting out.
Marco Rubio revs up his Florida presence and is nowhere to be found in Illinois, Missouri, and North Carolina.
The Cruz campaign redirects all its resources to those three states,with Cruz rallies, ad buys, GOTV etc.
Now Rubio’s spokesman goes on national television and says Rubio supporters should vote for John Kasich in Ohio.
Kasich is going all in in Ohio and ceding Illinois, Missouri, and North Carolina to Cruz. In fact, Kasich suddenly has no events in Illinois, and only one event in Pennsylvania after the Ohio primary.
In other words, Kasich is now only campaigning in Ohio; Rubio is only campaigning in Florida; and Cruz is avoiding events in Florida and Ohio.
There is clearly a plan to stop Trump.
Now National Review is coming out with an endorsement of Cruz. [Emphasis mine]
