    A Donald Trump-Ted Cruz 2016 ticket? Republican front-runner admits it’s possible

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump suggested Tuesday he could team up with Ted Cruz for the GOP’s 2016 ticket.
    Donald Trump is eyeing Ted Cruz as potential running mate, the outspoken mogul revealed Tuesday night.

    Trump, who remains the front-runner in the 2016 GOP race, admitted he is fond of the conservative Texas senator and would, if he wins his party's nomination, be interested in teaming up with him.

    "Well, I like him," Trump said on "The Laura Ingraham Show," when he was asked about Cruz as a potential running mate. "He's backed everything I've said."

    "Ted Cruz is now agreeing with me 100 percent," he added.

    The conservative duo both appeal to the right wing of the GOP, with each drawing support for a hardline approach to immigration, national security and lowering taxes.

    In addition, Cruz and Trump have consistently refrained from attacking each other and have appeared together at several rallies, including a high-profile protest in September against President Obama's Iran nuclear deal.

    Sen. Ted Cruz has risen in many national polls to third place in the race for the GOP 2016 nomination.
    The bombastic billionaire has even poached like-minded staff from Cruz's campaign, stealing away spokeswoman Katrina Pierson.

    Pierson, a one-time Cruz supporter and employee during his 2012 Senate election bid, was hired by the Trump campaign earlier this month as its national spokeswoman.

    Trump, however, has said that just because he likes Cruz doesn't mean he wouldn't turn on him in the future if the Texas senator becomes a stronger threat to him.

    "If he catches on, I guess we'll have to go to war," Trump told CNBC earlier this week of Cruz, who has risen to third place in several national polls, trailing only the mogul and Ben Carson.

    Cruz is a dismal little faggot with urine-soaked tighty whitey underwear. Combover Man will never get past the Electoral College.

    He's previously suggested to being open to running with Carson, before Carson started out-crazying him. That being said, I might be able to get behind that ticket.

    It's been confirmed behind the scenes for almost 2 months, Cruz is still in to back up Trump. I have to go back and quote myself, it was one of my first posts on Dawg

    It just makes sense. The sooner they team up, the better, and the better their chances are of getting the nomination.

    Trump/Cruz 2016!

    What a stunner that you're good with this ticket...:rolleyes:

    Although I like some of Trump's ideas, he is completely unqualified.
    And Cruz is worse! The guy is already a Senator but is so extremeist that we'd never get a thing done.
    Oh and having someone who believes that a President MUST be down on their knees praying every morning or they're unqualified to hold the office is enough for me to never vote for such a nut case.

    I picked up on this during the last debate. Cruz seemed to reiterate a lot of Trump's points, and I said to my husband then.. wait and see. They could just team up.

    Cruz makes some good points; I just get a little tired of his radical Christian stuff, and his family's story... *yawn* we've HEARD IT, TED!
