BLOG: Cruz addressing the convention now (Live stream)

The York Dispatch

Politico reporters Burgess Everett and Seung Min Kim profile "Ted Cruz at a crossroads":

"... As he prepares to address the Republican National Convention in Cleveland on Wednesday night, Cruz is at a crossroads. Being the bomb-throwing pariah of the Senate earned him a loyal following among conservatives suspicious of any compromise with Democrats. But it didn’t get him the nomination, and it stopped the GOP establishment from rallying around Cruz when he emerged as the only way to keep Trump from the nomination.

"Now, the always-calculating Cruz is plotting his strategy for the fall campaign and beyond. The most pressing question is whether the freshman senator will endorse Trump, who linked his father to JFK’s assassination and mercilessly branded him 'Lyin’ Ted.'"
