“Well number one, I believe we’re gonna win 1,237 delegates and win the majority and win it outright before the convention,” he said in an interview with CNN.
Cruz was also pressed about whether he would fight for the nomination in a brokered convention if he doesn’t reach the delegate threshold.
“Well look, there are many in the Washington establishment who are right now having fever dreams about a brokered convention — about a deadlocked convention — where they parachute in an establishment candidate who suddenly saves all of the fears of the lobbyists,” he responded.
“I think that would be an absolute disaster. I think the people would quite likely revolt.”
