Former Republican presidential contender Sen. Ted Cruz conceded defeat for his party’s rival, Donald Trump in the early afternoon of election day.
The Texan said he was breaking with tradition of waiting for election returns to come in because “it is in the best interest of this great nation of ours.”
He said it was time to look to the future and select a Republican nominee in 2020 who is equal to the challenges of that time.
But with polls suggesting a close-run thing, Cruz risked the kind of faux pas which led the then anti-EU UKIP leader Nigel Farage to claim on referendum night that Brexit had failed, only to be proven wildly wrong the following morning.
