Ted Cruz Campaign Directly Engineered Georgia Delegate Coup
The Cruz campaign handed out suggested pro-Cruz delegate slates to people entering conventions.

Ted Cruz and his campaign directly engineered the statewide coup this weekend that led to pro-Trump delegate candidates being voted down in districts that he won in landslides.

Breitbart News has obtained evidence of documents produced by the Ted Cruz campaign that were handed out to people heading into district conventions in Georgia. One such document was an open letter from Cruz backing Katie Frost for national delegate. Frost won in the highly contentious third district. Trump supporter Debbie Dooley, who was voted down as delegate in the Cruz coup, said that Cruz is friends with Frost’s family.

“I am proud to support my friend Katie Frost as a delegate to the 2016 National Convention in Cleveland,” Cruz wrote in the letter. “Heidi and I have worked closely with Katie during this Presidential Campaign, traveling the country together and working in all sorts of venues and settings…Katie has not only become a valued team member, she has also become a dear friend of our family.”

The Cruz campaign also printed suggested pro-Cruz delegate slates that were handed out to people entering the conventions, before the Cruz supporters started challenging pro-Trump delegates from the floor and replacing them with the recommended pro-Cruz names.

Former Trump campaign grassroots coordinator Jeanne Seaver was voted down at her district convention in favor of an 18-year-old high school student who told her that he did not plan to vote for Trump on the second ballot.
