Cruz says Trump supporters will soon back him

“I think Donald’s campaign has been immensely beneficial for our campaign and the reason is, he’s framed the central issue of the Republican primary as, who will stand up to Washington,” Trump told “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd.

“Well, the natural follow up if that’s the question is, who has actually stood up to Washington?” Trump continued, adding that he’s the only one with the proven record of standing up to both Democrats and Republicans.

Cruz said that “as voters get more educated, study the candidates, listen to the candidates in person,” conservatives are getting behind his candidacy.
