As Donald Trump courts the GOP establishment, his narrative of change shifts to unity
The unveiling of Donald Trump begins this week. From now until the California primary, he will be gathering up support from the Republican Establishment and declaring that his anti-establishment campaign is shifting into the mainstream. We will see endorsements, hear rumors of deals, and watch as former-conservatives turn their back on the #NeverTrump movement to gather the crumbs left in the wake of his nomination.
If this is depressing, keep something in mind. You’re supposed to be depressed. You’re supposed to feel defeated. Those of us who support Ted Cruz are supposed to lose hope. What they won’t tell you is that he still has a very clear chance of getting the nomination, but our voices can only be quashed if the despair they’re peddling is allowed to sink in.

It won’t be easy for the conservative faithful to remain squarely behind Ted Cruz, but it must be done. We will be hated. We will be ridiculed. Until the fat lady sings, we must remain diligent.
