Jeremy Peters: Cruz ‘Cowed into Submission’ by Donald Trump

‘It’s a risky strategy’

PETERS: “Yeah, I mean, that was a Ted Cruz, I think you’re right Joe, unlike any that I can remember seeing. I mean, he’s basically been cowed into submission. Like you said, when has Ted Cruz ever been afraid to criticize a fellow Republican? It’s extraordinary, the nominee without some of Donald Trump supporters. So, his risk is if he goes after Trump he alienate some of those people. You know, I just don’t know. It’s a risky strategy. The betting on Donald Trump’s collapse so far has been a losing bet in this election.”
