Conservative radio host and author Laura Ingraham writes in her new book that people were so incensed with Sen. Ted Cruz at the GOP convention that she was asked to consider moving to Texas to primary him in 2018.

Ingraham's new book, "Billionaire at the Barricades," details the chaos at the 2016 convention in Cleveland when Cruz refused to endorse Donald Trump for the GOP nomination.

Ingraham, who later this month will begin hosting a show on Fox News, writes that she even looked the Texas senator in the eye and told him, "you gotta endorse him tonight."

Cruz didn't.

"People were so torched by Cruz's failure to endorse Trump that talk of primarying him ignited almost the moment he walked off the stage," Ingraham writes in the book. "In fact, a tanned, good-old-boy type in his late 40s approached me and asked me if I'd consider moving to Texas to run against him."

Ingraham also claims in the book that GOP mega-donor, Sheldon Anderson, wouldn't allow Cruz into his suite at the convention.

Cruz, up for re-election in 2018, would eventually acquiesce, endorsing Trump two months later.
