Many political prognosticators and some prominent polls show that either Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio could beat bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump in a head-to-head race if either (as well as Ben Carson and John Kasich) would drop out of the race, but that neither can defeat Trump as long as the other is still in the race.
Leading conservative talk show host, founder of The Blaze, and best-selling author Glenn Beck announced a solution on his popular radio broadcast on Wednesday morning following the “Super Tuesday” primaries in which Donald Trump won seven states, Ted Cruz won three, and Marco Rubio only won one state — Minnesota.
Glenn Beck’s grand compromise would consist of a “dream team,” with Ted Cruz as the presidential candidate, Rubio as his running mate, Ben Carson running for Rubio’s soon to be vacated U.S. Senate seat in Florida (where he lives), and an agreement that they would name Sen. Mike Lee to replace the recently deceased Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. Beck didn’t seem to know what to do with Kasich, but called this a “dream team.”
The final part of Beck’s “dream team” would be naming Senator Rand Paul , who has championed issues like auditing the Federal Reserve Bank, as the next Treasury Secretary.
Beck contends that that the above group would capture a diverse group of conservative voters and would be very difficult to stop.
“Who would you not get if you said Ted Cruz as president?” Beck asked rhetorically. “You get all the constitutionally and the very conservative. Then you say Marco Rubio, you get all of his people. Then you say also Rand Paul as treasury secretary, you get all of the people, who is audit the fed. Audit the fed, which Ted Cruz agrees with but Rand Paul brings that credibility.”
“Everyone wins,” Glenn Beck proclaimed. “Cruz is president. Rubio, vice president. Mike Lee as our Supreme Court justice. Rand Paul as treasury secretary. And Ben Carson as the new Florida senator. Everyone wins, and we’ll stomp in November,” Beck said.
On Wednesday, Ben Carson announced that he would not be participating in the upcoming FOX News GOP Debate on Thursday, and that he would announce details of his future plans on Friday during his CPAC speech.
