    Now that Cruz is defying the money men behind the GOP, I suspect his fund raising is going to take a hit.

    Since he was “defying” them all through the 3rd quarter, your suspicion would appear to have been proven unwarranted.

    Senator Cruz Will need support from actual Americans. He won’t get it from too many corporate sponsors because he won’t do their bidding. He won’t get support from the GOP RINO machine. It’s up to us.
