THE BASICS: Frank Bruni of The New York Times writes that Cruz’s speech helped to further illustrate how poorly put together the convention has been; from technical distractions to poorly organized speakers, the RNC has turned out to be a series of chaos, and on the convention’s third night, a man who refused to endorse the Republican nominee ended up stealing the show, whereas Theodore Schleifer and Stephen Collinson from CNN explains that Cruz’s decision to not endorse Trump hurts Cruz more than it hurts Trump; he disrespected the Republican Party as well as it’s members, and ultimately, he failed the nation by not living up to his duty in supporting his own party’s nominee.
