#LoudonClear: Florida GOP establishment rocked by Cruz supporter Manny Roman
Listen to the show here!
Manny Roman, the Miami-Dade Republican Party Vice Chair, told author and speaker Trevor Loudon Tuesday that after he publicly endorsed Ted Cruz, “everything just blew up down here.”
Roman spoke with Loudon on this week’s episode of LoudonClear. Roman defied the GOP establishment by endorsing Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz in a letter to the Editor published in the Miami Herald.
As reported previously at TrevorLoudon.com, Roman’s act of defiance led party chief Nelson Diaz, who has worked with Marco Rubio (and even donated to Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Shultz) to call for Roman’s resignation, saying the endorsement “violated a Republican Party of Florida rule that prohibits GOP officers from endorsing one Republican over another.”
Manny told Trevor, “everything just blew up down here.” Manny explained that party officials questioned his decision and the GOP establishment in Florida received calls from “many important people…giving them hell.”
