This comes after Ted Cruz refused to endorse Donald Trump in a career ending speech last night at the RNC.

The Charlotte Observer reported:
When North Carolina Republican Chairman Robin Hayes asked fellow delegate Ted Hicks on Thursday what he thought of the convention speech by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Hicks was candid.
“I thought it was a fine speech,” said Hicks, who’d flown to Cleveland aboard Hayes’ private Pilatus plane.
But he was startled by Hayes’ reply.
“I think you need to ride the bus home,” Hayes told Hicks and fellow Cruz supporter Rod Chaney.
So the two Triangle-area Republicans, who’d expected to fly back with Hayes, scrambled to find a ride with a delegate who happened to be driving home Thursday.
