Not sure the endorsement of establishment really helps Trump.
Via The Hill:
Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) is warning of “wholesale losses” for Republicans if Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is the party’s nominee, and says only Donald Trump can stop him.
“I question his allegiance to the party,” the 1996 GOP presidential nominee said about Cruz in an interview with The New York Times published Wednesday. “I don’t know how often you’ve heard him say the word ‘Republican’ — not very often.
“If he’s the nominee, we’re going to have wholesale losses in Congress and state offices and governors and legislatures,” Dole continued.
He went on to praise Trump as someone who could work with Congress, noting his skills as a “deal-maker.”
“I think Trump can probably work with Congress, because he’s, you know, he’s got the right personality and he’s kind of a deal-maker,” Dole said.
