In San Diego, Ted Cruz Cracks Jokes, Excites Crowd, Mocks Protesters


With City Attorney Jan Goldsmith and KFMB radio host Mike Slater helping warm up a patient crowd, Ted Cruz brought his GOP presidential campaign Monday night to San Diego.“We are headed to something that hasn’t happened in decades,” said the Texas senator, ending a day that included a rally in Irvine. “California is going to decide the Republican presidential” — the last word being drowned out by cheers.Cruz, wearing cowboy boots at a rally with light security, left a Town & Country Hotel crowd of more than 1,000 laughing as he began seeking his share of 172 delegates in the state’s June 7 primary.

His stump speech, starting 50 minutes into the scheduled 6 p.m. event, was peppered with jokes.

Like: “The Democratic field consists of a wild-eyed Socialist — whose ideas are dangerous for America and the world — and Bernie Sanders.”

And: “Going forward, Hillary [Clinton] is going to be able to use any email server she likes — because she’ll never again be an employee of the United States government.”

A brief protest, out of sight in an adjoining foyer, didn’t faze Cruz.

He didn’t hear what was shouted, but the 45-year-old Tea Party favorite responded to the crowd’s drown-out chants of “Ted Cruz, Ted Cruz” by saying: “Apparently there’s a Bernie Sanders rally outside. By the way, you know the easiest way to clear out a Bernie Sanders rally? Just tell them they’ve gotta get a job.”
