THOSE WHO KNOW HIM BEST:

Three Texas Newspapers Reject Ted Cruz, Endorse Kasich and Bush Instead (Chas Danner, 2/13/16, NY Mag)

With the Texas primary coming up on March 1, three of the state's major newspapers have now passed on the chance to endorse native senator Ted Cruz for the GOP nomination -- and that's putting it mildly. As The Hill points out, the state's largest newspaper, the Dallas Morning News, went with "pragmatic" Ohio governor John Kasich on Friday, and both the Houston Chronicle and San Antonio Express-News have now opted for Jeb Bush as well. Said the Morning News of Cruz, "As much as we'd like to see a Texan in the White House, we fear that Cruz's brand of politics is more about disruption than governing and threatens to take the Republican Party to a dark place."
