Will the Mitt Romney-Donald Trump spat payoff for Texas Senator Ted Cruz in Arizona and Utah?
The one-time GOP Presidential hopeful is placing robocalls on Cruz’ behalf ahead of Tuesday’s Arizona Primary and Caucuses in Utah.
“I’ll be voting for Ted Cruz this Tuesday, and I encourage you to do the same thing” Romney said during the recorded calls, obtained by the Daily Caller.
“This is the time for Republicans across the spectrum to unite behind Ted. He’s the only Republican Candidate who can defeat Donald Trump” Romney said in the calls paid for by the Cruz Campaign, adding “At this point, a vote for John Kasich is a vote for Trump.”
Polls in Utah show Cruz leading Trump there, while those in Arizona suggest Trump is comfortably ahead before that state’s winner take all primary.
