1. Ted Cruz took some heat from his home state delegates Thursday morning. The night before, he was booed during his primetime speech on the floor of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. The convention crowd erupting in chants of “endorse Trump.” Cruz never made it official but congratulated Trump at the beginning of his speech. Trump walked into the hall at the end of Cruz’s speech to applause so loud, it drowned out the Texas senator’s final comments.

    On the final morning of the RNC, Cruz spoke at the Texas delegate breakfast. He was greeted with a standing ovation, but some in the crowd quickly started calling him out. Cruz took questions from the audience. One delegate spoke out saying when she first met Cruz, she asked if he was a man of his word? She noted that Cruz and Trump had some bad blood between them and Cruz acknowledged he didn’t want to endorse someone who attacked his wife and father. The delegate then added, “It’s not about Heidi, Rafael, it’s about the United State of America.”

    Cruz said, “I wasn’t elected to do the convenient thing, I was elected to do what’s right and that’s what I’ll continue to do.”

    Another delegate shouted out, “Get over it, it’s politics.” Cruz responded, “This is not a game. This is not politics.”

    Cruz also told the supporters in the crowd that he’s not encouraging any of them to write his name in.

    When asked if Cruz was going to vote for Donald Trump, one delegate shouted out, “His vote is private.”

    A delegate from Houston talked about Cruz’s speech last night. “It was horrible to the end where he didn’t endorse. Thought it was tasteless and disrespectful,” he said.
