Cruz Email Asks for $35 to Be ‘TOP DEPUTY DELEGATE’

Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign is asking supporters to pitch in $35 to become his “official Deputy Delegate” – not to be confused with real delegates who will attend the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, in July to select the GOP presidential nominee.

“I need your help with something,” the Texas senator said in a fundraiser email sent to supporters Tuesday. “The cutoff to become an official Deputy Delegate is in just 24 hours, and I still need 4 more Deputy delegates in zip [redacted].”

The message asks the recipient to pledge $35 to “become the top Deputy Delegate.”
