Rush: 'No Skullduggery' in Cruz's 'Brilliant' Play for Delegates

Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh told Donald Trump supporters in his audience Wednesday that Ted Cruz isn't "buying" delegates as they fear, but simply taking advantage of the nominating process.

"It's brilliant. It's politics as it’s been for eons. There's nothing new about it," Limbaugh said. "There's no cheating. There's no skullduggery. There's nothing illegal."

Limbaugh was responding to concerns of Trump supporters that Cruz is wooing Trump delegates to vote for him on a possible second ballot by paying them off. A second, third or fourth vote might be needed if no one enters the convention with the 1,237 delegates needed for the nomination.

But Limbaugh said he never meant to imply Cruz was doing anything nefarious or illegal.

"As far as I know, Ted Cruz is going in there and selling himself and his conservatism, period," he said. "There's nothing illegal about it. But apparently some of you Trump supporters think that Cruz is so reprehensive, so horrible, so rotten, the only way any delegate would support him is if he's paying 'em off."
