Ted Cruz Booed After Failing to Endorse Trump: 'Vote Your Conscience'
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) gave a stirring address to the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night, but failed to endorse Donald Trump, telling Americans to "vote your conscience."
Cruz congratulated Donald Trump on winning the party's nomination, but stopped short of endorsing Trump outright, saying merely that he wanted to see the party's principles prevailing in November.
He urged voters: "Please: don't stay home in November." But then he added: "If you love our country, and love your children as much as I know that you do, vote your conscience."
