What an exciting (but long!) afternoon! The event was scheduled from 12noon to 2pm. We got there about 10:30, anticipating security checks. Well, when we arrived apparently many, many others had the same idea but got there before we did. The line was almost to the road! And parking was almost impossible to find. But we managed to park and get to the end of the line, which was almost to the road and eventually doubled back on itself. There were several thousand there and some showed up without having acquired tickets. They were put in another area pending ticket holders not showing up. NOt sure any of them actually got in. Well, by the time we entered, all the seats were occupied so we stood, and stood, for a total of about 4 hours by the time we got out of there! But it was worth it.

We all assumed that it was gong to be a stump speech, and were we ever surprised when Megyn Kelly walked out on the stage! Turns out she was recording a Town Hall type interview with Cruz. It will air tonight at 9pm EST. She is just as gorgeous in person. A real sweetheart! She walked among the crowds asking for audience questions to ask Cruz. When Ted finally arrived, the place went crazy! We certainly gave him a warm NC welcome! She asked lots of questions and we all responded with cheers and boos where appropriate. He came up with a sound bite that I'd never heard him use before but I really likes. When asked about Welfare Reform, he said that welfare should be "like a trampoline, not a hammock". A great analogy.

When you add in the time we spent in line (and there was surprisingly absolutely no security checks of any kind) and then standing for the entire time we were on our feet non stop for about 4 hours! Fortunately, I was able to sit down for about 3 minutes before we headed out to the car. I'm not sure my legs would have made it to the pasture where we found a parking space! All in all it was a great afternoon, and I am looking forward to watching it tonight.

Maryellyn, I agree about Cruz.... the thing about Donald, I do not care for his petty rants or tantrums, what I WILL give him credit for is bring up all the things the RINO's are afraid to talk about for fear of being haters....Talk about killing PC crap! I THANK him for that. Ok so he is not a great policy wonk, isn't that the whole point of this uprising by conservatives? all the K street policy wonks feeding the RINO's for all these years look where we are now? I would rather have a clean slate let the Republican party and all those establishment Rino's all go by the wayside and get conservatives back in control, id that means getting Donald in the White house so be it! Cruz would make a great addition to the Supreme court! If it is Donald or Hillary ..... do you really want that lying piece of old hag in the White house with her Philandering husband back in control?

To this Senior Citizen, he looks awfully young and wet behind the ears! Putting that nonsense aside though, he just puts me off with his stand on immigration. If we won't let a felon vote, then why should someone, whose first action in America, is to break our laws, ever be granted citizenship? Green card status maybe, but not citizenship. He keeps trying to back peddle on his Gang of Eight involvement and I don't buy it. Cruz has been my guy since his Filibuster in teh Senate. He is Constitution all the way and I firmly believe we need to get our Country back to that founding document to get us back on track. Rubio is a bit wishy-washy on Constitution 101. However, if after the dust settles, if he is the GOP candidate, I will vote for him. Not sure what I will do if it is Trump against anybody else being considered, even Bloomberg. Just 4 more years of what we have now. Disaster.

Bloomberg is NOT a conservative nor a Republican. He only ran on the Republican ticket at first because he could not get the Democrat nomination. He is a sheep in wolves clothing.

I would love to see The Donald drop out and Michael Bloomberg get in. I believe he would be a good choice.

I am at the point where I don't care if the ones I prefer get the nomination. The important thing is to have someone who will can beat the DemocRATS.

With an ego the size of Trump's, I can't see him taking on the role of VP. He's either on the top of the ticket or he won't be on it at all. In the beginning it looked like they were pretty "buddy-buddy" but lately things have been getting pretty rocky between them. I would love to see the one on one Cruz has proposed. In my opinion, Trump is nothing but hot air. His tactics may work in the "real world" but when faced with the restraints of Congress he will be forced to become an Obama look alike with "Executive Orders" If you've had enough of that from BO, then you'll be inundated with it if Trump gets elected.

The more I read about Ted Cruz, the more I like the idea of Cruz/Trump. Trump's got a big mouth. Money talks and BS walks. Cruz,I found out has a lot of Super Pac money he's starting to put to use.
