"It's Death by Being Shot or Poisoning"

"Lindsey Graham was particularly piquant in his criticism. He was very clear he didn't like Cruz, who he said was no better than Trump and whom he accused of McCarthyism. He cracked, 'If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody would convict you.'
"A lot can change in a couple weeks. Graham made his joke about murdering Cruz way back on February 26, which makes it all the more surprising to hear from the South Carolina senator these days."

David A. Graham at The Atlantic reports on Republican leaders coming to terms with settling for Ted Cruz in order to block Donald Trump.

But David Brooks in The New York Times argues against Republicans embracing Cruz.

And Jonathan Chait at New York explores why conservative writers oppose Trump in the first place.
