Ep. 14: Cruz Douses Republican Talk of Unity

The Week Ahead: Convention Special


Texas Sen Ted. Cruz has cast a shadow over the last day of the Republican National Convention after he was booed off stage Wednesday night for refusing to endorse Donald Trump for president. This memorable moment also overshadowed the acceptance speech of Trump’s vice presidential nominee Mike Pence. CQ Roll Call’s Elections Editor Nathan Gonzales says Trump’s onetime campaign foe “overplayed his hand, he looks like a sore loser.” It’s a sentiment echoed by others as Trump is set to accept the GOP’s nomination for president Thursday night.

Gonzales is also the editor and publisher of The Rothenberg & Gonzales Political Report.
