Ted Cruz RNC Speech

Texas Senator and former Republican challenger for President Ted Cruz took the stage Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention, congratulating Donald Trump for winning the nomination, but never actually endorsing the victor.

Cruz told convention-goers to “vote your conscience” in November.

Trump supporters on the convention floor went into a frenzy, booing so loudly that they drowned out the end of Cruz’s speech. Cruz appeared to still be rooted as an anti-establishment public servant while the establishment has clearly fallen in line with Trump.

Here’s the exchange: “If you love our country, and love our children as much as you do, stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom, and to be faithful to the constitution.

“I appreciate the enthusiasm of the New York delegation.

“And I will tell you that it is love of freedom that has allowed millions to achieve their dreams. Like my mom, the first in her family to go to college, and my dad, who’s here tonight, who fled prison and torture in Cuba. Coming to Texas with just $100 dollars sewn into his underwear.  ”
