Rubio and Cruz Say They Will Support Trump for President – But Will Their Supporters?
At the Fox News GOP debate, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and John Kasich were asked if they would support Donald Trump if he is the Republican nominee.
They all said they would support Donald Trump if he was the Republican nominee.
But what about the conditional conservatives who support Rubio and Cruz?

The Hill put together a partial list of Republicans who say they won’t back Trump:
