“They should announce this and run with this. This should go all over the Internet. I think this is doable, and this is absolutely unstoppable.”
 
Beck said the candidates would have to commit to joining forces before Florida's primary May 15 to have a chance to stop Trump.
 
“Florida, they would win,” he said. "But if they don’t do it before the Florida election, then we lose it to Donald Trump. And all those delegates go to Trump.”
 
The radio host laid out a plan for other prominent GOP figures to align themselves with a Cruz-Rubio team.
