Once upon a time the people who worked for a presidential candidate were, believe it or not, longtime loyalists. Think JFKs brother and campaign manager Bobby Kennedy.
This might surprise you, but it appears that key GOP activists and influential party members do not see Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as having much of a shot at becoming the partyÂs 2016 nominee. Now, anyone looking at the early state polls at this stage of the race might say the same thing.
