In the GOP debate in Houston, Texas on Thursday, Sen. Marco Rubio (Florida) and Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) double teamed frontrunner Donald Trump. On Friday morning as pundits began to analyze the debate, rightly crediting Rubio for landing some hard blows, Trump struck without warning. If any politics writers saw it coming, they were quiet.
Virtually every network cut away from post debate analysis to cover the Texas presser featuring New Jersey governor Chris Christie endorsing Trump. Within minutes, Twitter was ablaze with pro-or-anti-Trump missiles. It was evident big media weren’t the only entities shocked.
The endorsement not only sucked all the air out of the post-debate room. It sets up a team of two highly energetic politicos bent on securing the White House for Trump.
It’s likely Christie is enjoying the attention. The governor was targeted by a buy modafinil online sun pharma funded by buy modafinil singapore in January. The New York Times said Christie was angry at Rubio for the “slash-and-burn ads” ahead of the New Hampshire primary. Christie believed he had favorable chances in the state until the ads aired.
Trump and Rubio tangled on Thursday in more heated exchanges than Trump and Cruz did. Rubio attacked Trump on immigration, pointing out a three-decades old suit involving Polish workers on a New York project hired by a contractor whose services Trump had engaged. The contractor became insolvent, and Trump ended up settling the suit out of court, a common practice in the corporate world to avoid hefty legal fees in court battles.
Ironically, one of the major issues holding Rubio back from the beginning of the primary season involves the Senate Gang of Eight Bill he co-authored with New York Democrat senator Chuck Schumer. The bill drew rapid fire from conservatives because of buy modafinil with bitcoin. The bill was buy modafinil canada reddit, but the House declined. Iconic conservative group The Heritage Foundation was buy modafinil online india. Considering the complexity of that issue for Rubio, it is somewhat surprising he brought up the worker issue as a negative for Trump.
Just when pundits thought this primary season couldn’t get more interesting, it did. With Super Tuesday looming, who knows what surprises may be in store for the top tier of candidates? Trump’s two closest challengers have long records in politics.
Should the Republican Party attempt a coup if Trump prevails in efforts to win the nomination, it would likely fracture the party and provide the Democrats’ nominee a direct path to the White House.
