Five days after being asked to resign by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), conservative strategist Rick Tyler shared his Virginia ballot on Facebook. He had voted for the old boss.

Tyler's departure from the campaign came after Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) insisted there be "accountability" for Cruz's tactics, and after Tyler himself shared a video that falsely appeared to show Rubio disparaging the Bible. There was, nevertheless, a small gasp when Cruz told reporters in Las Vegas that Tyler was a "good man" who had to go. Quotable and well-liked in the press corps, Tyler quickly secured a contributor contract with MSNBC, and has said nothing negative about Cruz since the layoff.
