When I first wrote that, I was assuming that Rand won't run again. Let's be honest here. Just by looking at voting records, there are only a few people in congress that come very close to Rand, and that is Amash, Massie, Lee and Cruz, which is the reason Mike Lee and Amash endorsed Cruz. We can't ignore that.
I would be surprised if Rand runs again. Libertarians turned their backs on him. If Rand doesn't run again, and there is no one else, then Cruz is the closest to Rand. I don't think this can be denied.
Now if Rand does decide to run, which I doubt, then yes I would love for this to backfire on Cruz. I don't like him because he's a backstabber, but if there is no one else, and he can actually pull off a primary victory, I would vote for him in the general.
