Sam Nunberg—a New York Republican who previously advised Donald Trump’s campaign and is now unaffiliated but attended the Cruz meeting in Manhattan—told Breitbart News that Cruz didn’t say what Picket reported he said, or at least not in that context.Nunberg said in a brief phone interview on Tuesday:
I attended the meeting. Sen. Cruz said that by the time the primary reaches New York, Kasich will have been out of the race because he is going to lose Arizona, he is going to lose Utah, and he is going to lose Wisconsin. He will have no rationale to be in the race and therefore should not be in the primary any longer. He never said in that room that Kasich was not on the ballot. Perhaps they should worry about winning another state besides Ohio.
