Republican officials who oppose Donald Trump as their party nominee have spent the last few days — ever since the withdrawal from the race of Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich — wondering if there is anything they could have done to prevent this outcome.
Top officials of the Cruz campaign are convinced there is one specific step that could have stopped Trump — and they blame Sen. Marco Rubio for not taking that step.
In early March, it became clear that Trump was well on his way to the nomination and would even likely defeat Rubio in his home state of Florida’s March 15 primary.
According to several sources close to Cruz, the Cruz campaign conducted several secret polls to see what the impact would be if Rubio joined Cruz as his running mate, with Cruz at the top of the ticket.

“If you’re a football coach and you’ve got an all-American middle linebacker, I’m not sure they’re going to replace him with someone who has better moral standards, I’m just saying,” Sessions said.
No, you ignore your LB’s flaws while you attack your opponents moral failings and their willingness to recruit thugs.
Governor Bentley, “tear down this wall” or something….
Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley’s office will remove the wall that was built on county property outside the governor’s beach house, Baldwin County Commissioner Chris Elliott confirmed Friday.
Elliott said he received a call from the governor’s office confirming the wall’s removal. He and Commissioner Tucker Dorsey met with state officials earlier in the day to discuss their concerns about the wall’s encroachment onto county right-of-way.
Elliott described the meeting as “productive” and initially said that a resolution would be reached by Monday.
Commissioners had been steadfast in recent weeks that a wall, recently extended to protect the state-owned governor’s beach house, has to be removed. A survey, completed by Baldwin County engineers, shows the wall clearly extends beyond state-owned property.
The governor’s office did not respond to an immediate request for comment.
The decorative wall’s construction is part of a $1.8 million rehabilitation of the sprawling but dilapidated beach house. Money for the project comes from a grant the state received in 2010 from BP following the Deepwater Horizon disaster.
