Bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump, who both endorsed and funded establishment RINO Mitch McConnell’s 2014 re-election campaign against Ted Party favored candidate Matt Bevin (who went on to be Kentucky’s next governor), appears to be soundly defeating constitutional conservative Ted Cruz in the Kentucky primary on what is known as Super Saturday.
After losing badly to Cruz in two stunning upsets in Kansas and Maine on Saturday night, Trump, even though the race has not been officially called as of 9:10 PM ET, appears to have pulled out an expected win in Kentucky, easily defeating the Texas senator and the rest of the field.
With 31.3% of precincts reporting, Trump leads Cruz by an 11-point margin, 42.2% to 31.1%, with pro-amnesty candidate Marco Rubio and RINO Ohio Governor John Kasich fighting for third place at 13% and 12.2%, respectively.
Trump canceled his scheduled speech on Saturday morning at CPAC, the largest annual gathering of grassroots conservatives in the nation, at the last minute claiming that the decision was made in order to continue on the campaign trail. However, many believe Trump decided to diss the attendees at the conservative grassroots conference because of a rumored walkout planned during his speech.
Trump stiffed conservatives at CPAC to campaign in Kansas, where he was defeated by Cruz in historic fashion, with Cruz outperforming polls by an unheard of 32 percent.
