Letter: Cruz deserves credit for standing his ground

Cruz deserves credit for standing his ground

Although not agreeing with most of what he has ever said, I heartily applaud the closing comments of Sen. Ted Cruz at the Republican National Convention, when he bravely failed to endorse Donald Trump. This inane concept of party loyalty right or wrong has zero merit, particularly when that loyalty is to a bully so undeserving of praise as is the Republican presidential nominee.

How sad that many GOP leaders continue to endorse a man whom they admittedly disagree with on so many fronts, motivated only by party loyalty. Perhaps, with all of our modern-day surgical advances, the GOP politicians can get a backbone transplant that would allow them to vote their conscience, as Cruz so surprisingly suggested.
