At the recent CPAC in Florida (Desantis territory) it was obvious that the GOP is still the party of Trump. I mean they rolled out a “golden calf” in his image for the event! Not sure what Cruz will make of that when he come back down from the mountain top. Maybe he will smash it and try to rebrand himself as the savior of Republicanism while wearing a MAGA hat under his own, with just enough red showing to give a “nod and a wink” to the more extreme elements (if they are not mainstream by then). I think they would trust Cruz. Once Desantis and Cruz go a few rounds Haley will pop up to calm things down and reassure the “moderates” that she is a safe pair of hands. Then Kristi Noem will nominate Haley as her running mate. Donnie might like that.
