A strange development on “Meet the Press” this morning as some guy I’ve never heard of named “Ted Cruz” is the star guest, booked at the last minute to discuss something or other. I assume that whatever he has to say isn’t important enough to justify watching. If you’re looking for Trump surrogates, though, you’ve got three to choose from: Kellyanne Conway will be on “This Week” and “State of the Union” and Mike Pence will be on “Fox News Sunday” and “Face the Nation,” where he’ll be followed by Paul Ryan, who … I guess counts as a Trump surrogate? Perhaps Conway et al. will shed some light on who this “Cruz” character is and why anyone should take him seriously.

Elsewhere, Clinton supporters will be out in force to try to reassure Democrats that their bumbling loser of a nominee isn’t going to blow this election for them despite trying very, very hard to do so. Tim Kaine will be on “Face the Nation,” chief pollster Joel Benenson will be on “Fox News Sunday,” and campaign manager Robby Mook will be on “This Week” and “State of the Union,” where he’ll try and probably fail to answer the most basic policy questions. The full line-up is at the AP.
