Sen. Ted Cruz’s wife Heidi Cruz was heckled by attendees at the Republican National Convention after her husband refused to explicitly endorse Donald Trump.
Reporter Graham Moomaw tweeted a video of the former Goldman Sachs manager leaving the convention floor escorted by Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, a supporter of her husband’s presidential campaign.
As Ted Cruz’s speech was drowned out by boos, some attendees heckled Heidi Cruz as she left, shouting “Goldman Sachs” repeatedly.

Some reporters tweeted that the anger in the room over Cruz’s refusal to endorse Trump boiled over.
Two sources tell me Trump team actively whipped the “boos” at the end of Cruz speech

Heidi Cruz herself became a target of the Trump campaign during the Republican primary.
