In other election cycles, by this time the battle for the GOP nomination would be gearing down as voters accept the frontrunner, but the opposite is happening this year with Donald Trump – the fights are just getting more dirty!!
Maybe that’s why The Donald is attempting to completely change the debate by making this huge threat after finding out that Ted Cruz had out-organized him in Louisiana’s primary:

That’s big threat and it’s making headlines – but is that all it will make? Many think so – here’s why:
