Ever since Ted Cruz dropped out of the Republican presidential race last week, Glenn Beck and his co-hosts have been holding on to a sliver of hope that if Cruz could still somehow manage to win today’s Republican primary in Nebraska, that would convince the Texas senator to unsuspend his campaign and re-enter the race.
Today, Cruz called into Beck’s radio program and Beck’s co-host Pat Gray directly asked Cruz about this possibility.
“If Nebraska were to somehow miraculously choose you tonight,” Gray asked, “if that happened, would you consider getting back in the race?”
Cruz responded that he would certainly be open to that admittedly slight possibility.
“I am not holding my breath,” Cruz said. “My assumption is that that will not happen. But listen, let’s be very clear, if there is a path to victory, we launched this campaign intending to win; the reason we suspended the race last week is with Indiana’s loss, I didn’t see a viable path to victory. If that changes, we will certainly respond accordingly.”
Beck and crew were, of course, elated and urged Republicans in Nebraska to turn out en masse today to vote for Cruz.
