Ted Cruz abandona la carrera




TedCruz

Completamente inesperado – el Senador de Texas Ted Cruz (R) abandonó la carrera a la nómina presidencial por el partido republicano después de ser derrotado por el multibillonario Donald Trump (R) por 16 puntos porcentuales en la primaria de Indiana el martes (mayo 3). Aparentemente, yo no fuí el único en sorprenderse, “El Donald” dijo “Yo no lo esperaba, y lo que hizo Trump demostró gran valentía.”
El Senador Cruz hizo todo lo posible para seguir adelante y ganar el apoyo de los votantes. Concretó un arreglo con John Kasich con el fin de que su campaña no llegue a Indiana. Eligió a Carly Fiorina, la ex candidata a la nómina republicana, a ser su Vicepresidente. Ganó el apoyo del Gobernador de Indiana Mike Pense. Pero nada logro superar al mediático candidato Donald Trump. Y el resultado fue; Cruz afuera… Donald a la cabeza.
¿Y ahora qué? Te preguntas.
Como siempre digo, lo último que hay que perder es la esperanza. Trump puede que llegue a ser el candidato republicano pero no todos los republicanos lo apoyan. El mediático autor, Mark Salter explicó que él apoyaría a Clinton antes de apoyar a Trump. El Gobernador de Ohio John Kasich negó declarar a Trump como el candidato de su partido.
Sólo con tiempo sabremos. Mantengamos en mente que Trump podrá ser el candidato republicano pero Clinton y Sanders siguen peleando por la nómina demócrata y como Obama dijo en su discurso recientemente “nadie sabe quién será el próximo presidente pero pronto sabremos quién ELLA será.”


And then, there was a GOP nominee

Commentary by Dermidio Juez-Perez

It was unexpected.
On Tuesday (May 3), Ted Cruz exited the race for the GOP presidential nomination after being defeated by multibillionaire Donald Trump by 16 percentage points in Indiana’s primary. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who was astonished by this. “The Donald” himself said: “I didn’t expect it – and what Ted did is really a brave thing to do.”
Cruz did everything he could to stay alive and gain voters’ trust and support.  He struck a deal with fellow Republican candidate John Kasich (who has announced he plans to continue to challenge Trump) to keep Kasich’s campaign out of Indiana. He chose Carly Fiorina, a former Republican presidential nominee candidate, as his running mate. He even received Indiana Gov. Mike Pence’s support.
But none of his strategies made a difference. They came too late. The result: Cruz is out, “The Donald” is still in – and is the likely GOP nominee.
“What now?” you might ask. As I always say, hope is the last thing we should lose – and there’s hope Trump will lose in the presidential election in November. After all, Trump might be the GOP’s nominee, but not every Republican is with him. Outspoken author Mark Salter, who once worked for Republican U.S. Sen. John McCain, said recently that he’d have to back Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton over Trump. And Kasich has denied declaring Trump the GOP nominee.  
Time will tell, of course, whether or not the Republican Party rallies around Trump. Meanwhile, Clinton and Bernie Sanders are still fighting over the Democratic nomination, although that could be resolved soon, as President Obama suggested when he joked during the recent White House correspondents’ dinner in Washington, D.C.: “Next year this time, someone else will be standing here in this very spot. And it’s anyone’s guess who SHE will be.”
Sounds like Clinton will be the Democratic nominee, unless something else unexpected happens.
