The GOP Thunderdome

Thunderdome – where two men enter and one man leaves…but not quite – now there are three in the GOP Thunderdome – Cruz, Trump and Rubio. Full disclosure – I’m a Cruz backer and based on my posts and comments here, I’m sure there is no doubt where I stand on Trump. Fearful prediction: we…
