Ted Cruz hoping for win in Arkansas, predicts two-man race after Super Tuesday

Posted By on Sun, Feb 28, 2016 at 4:21 PM



"We hope to do well here in Arkansas," presidential hopeful Ted Cruz told Roby Brock of Talk Business in an interview while he was in town this weekend. 

Sitting down with Brock in Little Rock, Cruz hammed and sighed and dramatically paused his way through his talking points in his oleaginous style. Arkansans are tired of Washington dealmakers, Cruz said, and he's the only one with a proven record of leading the fight against Obamacare, amnesty, and the Second Amendment. Cruz is fighting a cold and it's impressive that he is able to sustain his performative riffs even under the weather. 

Brock asked Cruz if he needed to win Texas (he does), but Cruz declined to predict a victory. 

Brock is one of the best interviewers in Arkansas, but on policy and politics, Cruz didn't say a single word that isn't part of his normal stump speech/media availability routine. 

"My guess is that coming out of Super Tuesday, Donald and I will be far and away the major delegate leaders and that will tee this up to be effectively a two-person race," Cruz said. He added, "If Marco comes out of Super Tuesday winning very, very few delegates, becomes hard [for him] to stay in the race without winning any states. To date, he has not won any states." 

Cruz also revealed that he loves video games. Brock asked where he was going to lunch today in Arkansas but Cruz said he'd be on the road. Boring. Cruz said his favorite movie is "The Princess Bride." Okay, that's awesome.  

Cruz was droppin' his g's for most of the interview but started slippin[g] into using the full suffix toward the end.
