Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] says that if the rules are changed by the GOP on who can be the nominee for the Republican Party if there is an open convention, “there would rightly be a revolt of the voters.”

In an interview with Hugh Hewitt on Wednesday, Cruz said, “there is a real possibility that nobody gets to 1,237 [delegates]. And if that’s the case, we should operate under the rules that existed when this whole process started. And those rules say that in order to be on the ballot, you have to have won eight states. Only two of us will meet that threshold – me and Donald Trump.”

“Those will be the two names on the ballot,” Cruz insisted. Adding, “And I think if the Washington deal makers try to change the rules to cook the books and insert their favorite deal maker, I think there would rightly be a revolt of the voters. We would have had elections in 50 states, and we need to honor the will of the voters and respect what they decide.”
