All this is premature, but if Rubio comes out of Super Tuesday still standing, Cruz will need to consider making him an offer. “I’ll stay out of Florida if you stay out of a few states I’m targeting.” The goal would change from knocking out Rubio to jointly knocking out Trump. Then Cruz and Rubio could go head to head.
This tactic would be universally applauded. I bet even Mitch McConnell would like it. I’m sure Roger Ailes would.
Cruz will want to wait until after Super Tuesday. Actually, I think he should make Rubio an offer right now. I’ll stay out of Florida if you stay out of Texas.
