Rep. Steve King: Trump Is Buying Endorsements

Nutjob Rep. Steve King took GOP infighting to a new level yesterday. Politico reports:

Ted Cruz’s most influential backers, stunned by Donald Trump’s commanding lead and growing list of endorsements, opened a new line of attack against the GOP front-runner on Tuesday – suggesting the New Yorker is buying support.

One of Cruz’s most important surrogates in Iowa, Rep. Steve King, on Tuesday said Donald Trump has succeeded in lining up critical endorsements because he’s able to make offers that are “awfully difficult to refuse.”

“Let’s just say this: when Donald Trump decides he wants somebody on his team, he has an unlimited reservoir of resources that he can bring to bear,” King told POLITICO after Trump scored the backing of evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. and anti-immigration hardliner Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Enjoying his hefty lead, Trump has decided to skip the final GOP debate before the caucuses, holding a competing event instead — a move no other candidate could make, as each needs more time to appeal to voters.
