Cruz: It’s Certain We’re Heading to a Contested Convention; I’m Going to Win It

‘Where do the Rubio delegates and the Kasich delegates go? And I think they naturally come to us’

CRUZ: "Regardless of what happens here, in all likelihood we are headed to a contested convention in Cleveland. Where I’m gonna come in with a a bunch of delegates, Donald’s gonna come in with a bunch of delegates, neither one of us will have gotten the majority. And then it’s gonna be a battle to see who can earn a majority from the delegates who are elected by the people. And Jimmy, if that happens, I think we’re gonna be in the much stronger position, I think Donald’s highest total will be on the first ballot. And we will naturally, you know one way to think about it is -- where do the Rubio delegates and the Kasich delegates go? And I think they naturally come to us. and I think we’ll win a majority at the convention and then we’ll go on and beat Hillary in November."
