Ted Cruz Has Disgusting Taste in Food

At the California GOP convention, he claims that endangered Delta smelt “go great with cheese and crackers.”

This endangered smelt makes for a great hors d'ouvre, according to Cruz<a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/gageskidmore/5440600706/in/photolist-hfnoMA-fmzuvA-9hLv3s-e4rLrw-BUqdjT-CPuUWb-CGgkFh-CRN9nc-bTRZU2-qacmJh-9hLvis-nG7paW-bEXejf-nFUvrD-CRNUW2-gUMZwB-BUinTs-fmze2A-9UrQV7-gac5oM-FwLarM-fmztg9-fmzhoo-o1byd4-g28jnV-nFUMsL-CPuHzo-CPuvu1-CGfF6w-g27WyN-gE2Jct-fmjJnc-G11MMb-p49dML-kMBJAc-e4maS2-gxfTci-fmz2Wy-bEWKuN-r7E5dN-h3gE3P-fmjUqz-bEXiYW-gmhrP8-kMDAuQ-av9aPL-rcjAzM-dcmRwn-sqttEQ-bEXiph">Gage Skidmore</a>/Flickr

With California’s unusually high-stakes primary just weeks away, the top contenders for the Republican presidential nomination have descended on their party’s state convention in Burlingame, a suburban enclave 16 miles south of San Francisco. This weekend’s convention will be a key opportunity for Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and John Kasich: For the first time in at least a half century, the GOP presidential nomination will hinge on who Californians vote for in the state’s June 7 primary. This has empowered local GOP officials, some of whom have toiled in obscurity for years, running quixotic candidates against Nancy Pelosi or denouncing local climate-change laws in Santa Cruz. Suddenly, these GOP officials now possess valuable connections with potential volunteers and local voters.

I have a ticket to the convention and will be posting live updates here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
