Buzzfeed is breaking the story that Mike Lee will endorse Ted Cruz today. This is another signal that Marco Rubio is withdrawing, or at least is viewed as having no path forward.
Lee has scrupulously avoided taking sides in the race between Rubio and Cruz. Lee went so far as to do separate campaign events in South Carolina for both Rubio and Cruz.
That all changes today.
The question now is where is Ben Sasse? Sasse needs to join Lee. Ben Sasse has really been outspoken on the need to stop Trump and has joined me in insistence that he will vote third party instead of Trump.
It is clear now the path forward to stop Trump is to support Cruz. So it’d be great to see Ben Sasse join Mike Lee and lead the party toward Cruz.
