CLEVELAND — At the conclusion of Sen. Ted Cruz’s Wednesday speech at the Republican National Convention, the crowd in the Quicken Loans Arena booed the Texas senator loudly for not endorsing Donald Trump.
At one point during his speech, Cruz said, “And to those listening, please, don’t stay home in November. Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.” (RELATED: Trump Reminds Cruz He’s Not The Nominee With Epic Flyover [VIDEO])
By the end of the speech, the crowd appeared to become restless and disgruntled that Cruz did not endorse Trump. When it was clear that the endorsement would never come, and as the Texas senator was signing off, the boos eclipsed Cruz’s remarks.
Earlier in the day, just as Cruz admitted that the Republican Party “now has a nominee” that was not himself, Trump’s plane did a flyover of his event, silencing the booing crowd.
