Washington Co. Republican Party reacts to Cruz

Author: | Posted in Uncategorized No comments
On Tuesday night, following a crushing loss to Donald Trump in Indiana,  Ted Cruz announced he would step out of the Republican presidential race.
Reaction from leaders in the Washington County Republican Party was one of soldiering forward.
“Sen. Cruz needed to win Indiana to continue with his campaign,” said Jim Geldreich, chairman of the Washington County Republican Party. 
“The loss in Indiana dealt a major blow to his chances of winning the nomination at a contested convention, as most prognostications now show Donald Trump surpassing the 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination outright. 
Geldreich said, “It will be interesting to see whether Trump can unite the party, as many party faithful do not feel he is a conservative.”
Geldreich and fellow Washington County party representative Kathy Kiernan will leave July 18 for the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.

Geldreich predicts one of the main talking points will be the U.S. Supreme court appointment to replace Justice Scalia.
