i expect you to keep your word and say that your wore is your bond. >> reporter: cruz says it's personal. >> that pledge was not a blanket commitment that if you go and slander and attack heidi, that i'm going to nonetheless come like a servile puppy dog and say, "thank you very much for maligning my wife and maligning my father." >> reporter: many delegates weren't buying it. >> are you going to vote for trump? >> his vote is private. >> reporter: no direct answer there, so, we tried to ask, too. you won't even say if you're going to vote for him? after he left, the republican family feud out in the open. >> i'm a texan. >> no, you're a coward. >> reporter: one republic -- >> he signed a pledge, and he didn't follow his word. and he will never be president. >> reporter: versus another. >> he did the right thing. he congratulated the nominee. he told the people to vote their conscience. >> and jon karl back with us tonight. we're up in the broadcast booth, but jon is right there in the
