Sad to see how Texas is a victim of common core… This entire nation needs to know what a Natural Born Citizen is. Cruz Rubio Jindal all equally worthless. I believe they should be help responsible for their obvious and voluntary attempt to con the country and to betray the Constitution.


It’s ok to be as dumb as a sack of rocks Kay, just do yourself a favor and don’t flaunt it.


After tomoorow Nick,,, you can just “read em and weep” after Trump runs the table,,,Trump 2016

Texas is not a winner take all state. If Cruz can’t land 50% or better, his campaign is virtually over.


You would think it would be but Cruz and Rubio are banking on a brokered convention. Unfortunately for Cruz he is pretty much hated in the GOP so Rubio may get the crown. Rubio is not well liked even in his home state however. If a brokered convention don’t result in a Trump nomination we may as well sing the death Nell for the Republican party.


Yep,,, tomorrow they will “split em up” like the gentleman they aint,,lol, Trump2016


Rubio wont get crap because he can’t even win one state.


Yep everybody get out an vote Trump tomorrow,,Trum,p 2016
