Texas Sen. Ted Cruz held a thank-you event Wednesday at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland for delegates who supported his unsuccessful presidential campaign.  Bexar County delegate Laura Koerner is a Cruz supporter who was there live blogging.

“He said he doesn’t know what the future will hold but he wants us to keep up the grassroots fight,” she said.

Koerner said it seemed a little weird that Donald Trump’s plane flew overhead just as Cruz begun talking about the Party having a new presidential nominee. 

She said she doesn’t think Cruz will endorse Trump who referred to the Texan as “lying Ted” throughout the campaign, and posted insulting comments about Trump’s wife on social media.   

Koerner said she’s not ready to back the billionaire either.

“I’m going to be using every opportunity between now and November to look for the Trump campaign to reach out to conservatives and address our concerns, look for more detailed policy statements.”

Koerner will be live blogging when Cruz speaks at the convention tonight.
