All three of the Presidential candidates said on Tuesday they can no longer stand by their promise to support the Republican party’s eventual nominee.
Donald Trump revoked his pledge to support the nominee and he also freed Ted Cruz from the pledge. In a CNN Town Hall Trump said,
“He doesn’t have to support me. I really don’t believe I need his support,”
Ted Cruz said things have changed and he can no longer support the pledge.
“The answer to that is to beat him at the ballot box,”
“I’m not an easy person to tick off, but when you go after my wife, when you go after my daughters, that does it,”
Cruz accused Trump of feeding stories to the National Enquirer that say Cruz has had multi affairs, which Cruz has strenuously denied.
John Kasich also said his answer is the same as Cruz’s and he cannot pledge to support the eventual nominee.
“I gotta see what happens,” Mr. Kasich said. “If the nominee is somebody who I think really is gonna be hurting the country and dividing the country,” he couldn’t endorse him.
