PAY TO PLAY=> Ted Cruz Is Selling “Top Deputy Delegate” Positions to Campaign Donors
On Saturday Ted Cruz supporters took all 13 of the delegates up for grabs at the Colorado GOP Convention to complete a clean sweep of the state.
But it was not without controversy.
There never was a vote – Party elites decided on who got the delegates.
The anti-Trump politicians were passing around a “Resolution to Forbid Colorado Delegates from Voting for Trump” for weeks before the convention.
After Cruz swept the Colorado delegates the Colorado Republican Party tweeted this out:
The Cruz camp is so proud of their shady tactics that they are now selling “top deputy delegate” positions to campaign donors.
World Net Daily reported:
Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign is asking supporters to pitch in $35 to become his “official Deputy Delegate” – not to be confused with real delegates who will attend the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, in July to select the GOP presidential nominee.
“I need your help with something,” the Texas senator said in a fundraiser email sent to supporters Tuesday. “The cutoff to become an official Deputy Delegate is in just 24 hours, and I still need 4 more Deputy delegates in zip [redacted].”
The message asks the recipient to pledge $35 to “become the top Deputy Delegate.”

“You and I both have a lot riding on this election – the future of our country is at stake,” the email states. “I know not everyone can come to Cleveland – but you can still become an official Deputy Delegate for my campaign. Please don’t sit this one out!”
The message takes supporters to Cruz’s campaign donation page, which allows donations of $25 to $5,400 and promises to send the following “Deputy Delegate card” to Cruz contributors:
