Here's the text of the pledge which was signed by all of the Republican candidates:

I (name) affirm that if I do not win the 2016 Republican nomination for president of the United States I will endorse the 2016 Republican presidential nominee regardless of who it is. I further pledge that I will not seek to run as an independent or write-in candidate nor will I seek or accept the nomination for president of any other party.

In March of this year, Cruz reaffirmed that pledge.

"My answer is the same," Politico reported Cruz told reporters when asked if he would support Trump. "I committed at the outset, I will support the Republican nominee, whoever it is."

Cruz is not along in violating the pledge. Joining the Texas Senator are former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and Ohio Governor John Kasich.

Ohio's Gov Kasich went on to trumphet: Trump probably can't win Ohio

Jeb Bush said, with great venality, that 

  • "Donald Trump has not demonstrated that temperament or strength of character. He has not displayed a respect for the Constitution. And, he is not a consistent conservative. These are all reasons why I cannot support his candidacy.
Ravings of petulant losers.

They all pretty much de-committed towards the end. I suspect Trump would not have supported any of the rest either. Complained the whole time that it wasnt fair and it was rigged, etc. I think it was a stupid question and they were all idiots to answer it.

'Just free-associating: Your "mermaid" gag reminded me of this:
Dwight Babcock: There they were, a schoolroom full of them: boys, girls, teachers, romping around stark naked, bare as the day they were born.
Auntie Mame: I assure you that the children under Mr. Page's care were engaged in normal, healthful, broadening pursuits.
Dwight Babcock: Broadening? You show them what you were doing when I broke into that place. Go ahead, show them.
Patrick Dennis: We just playing Fish Families.
Dwight Babcock: Fish Families!
Patrick Dennis: It's part of "constructive play".
Dwight Babcock: Now, listen to this.
Auntie Mame: Show me now darling, show me.
Patrick Dennis: Well, we do it right after yogurt time. Mrs. Page and all the girls crouch down on the floor under the sun lamps. And they pretend to be lady fishes, depositing their eggs in the sand. Then Mr. Page and all the boys do what gentlemen fish do.
Auntie Mame: [pause] What could be more wholesome or natural?
