Oklahoma's Republican Delegates Look for Unity at Convention
Oklahoma Republicans say Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's refusal to endorse GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump will likely hurt his chances to be the party's standard-bearer in the future.
Oklahoma delegates at the Republican National Convention said Thursday they are disappointed that Cruz, who won Oklahoma's presidential primary in March but lost the nomination to Trump, did not endorse the GOP nominee during a televised speech Wednesday night.
Delegate John Roberts of Oklahoma City says Cruz delivered a fantastic speech that captivated the convention crowd. But Roberts says Cruz tried to be coy by avoiding an endorsement of Trump and may have "made himself a footnote in history."
Delegate Hope Sutterfield of Duncan says Cruz should not have attended the convention at all if he didn't intend to endorse Trump.
