Sen. Ted Cruz May Unsuspend His Campaign (Video)

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas suspended his presidential campaign on May 3 after losing the Indiana primary to GOP frontrunner Donald Trump. However, Cruz suggested on May 10 that he may reinstate his campaign (video below).

Cruz called into Glenn Beck's radio program, where Beck's co-host Pat Gray asked Cruz about the Republican primary in Nebraska, notes Right Wing Watch.

"If Nebraska were to somehow miraculously choose you tonight," Gray asked. "If that happened, would you consider getting back in the race?"

Cruz replied:

I am not holding my breath. My assumption is that that will not happen. But listen, let's be very clear, if there is a path to victory, we launched this campaign intending to win; the reason we suspended the race last week is with Indiana's loss, I didn't see a viable path to victory. If that changes, we will certainly respond accordingly. 

Beck and Gray urged listeners in Nebraska to get out the vote for Cruz, but the state favored Trump, according to CBS News.

Meanwhile, the ex-candidate's wife Heidi Cruz recently told the campaign's National Prayer Team via conference call that her husband's campaign was like the effort to end slavery, notes The Texas Tribune:

I don’t want you to feel like any of this was in vain. I believe in the power of prayer. This doesn’t always happen on the timing of man, and God does not work in four-year segments.

Be full of faith and so full of joy that this team was chosen to fight a long battle. Think that slavery — it took 25 years to defeat slavery. That is a lot longer than four years.

I want to assure all of you that this was not a race we gave up. This was a race that no longer had a viable path to victory, and it would’ve been very demoralizing for you all and the troops to go through nine states of losses. We left on a high note. We left when there was no possible way that we were going to win.

We have changed the Republican Party. This is no longer about the establishment and the old way of doing things versus the Constitution. This party is now being deceived, but the old battles are behind us, the new ones are before us.

It was our first national race, but we have changed the Republican Party by Ted being in the Senate and Ted running this race.

We are not only keeping this band together, we have been having meetings five hours a day since the time we dropped out. Every single person in our leadership team in our campaign, Ted and I will probably be working with on a weekly basis in the next four years."
