Cruz Control: Ted Axes Top Spokesman

 

LAS VEGAS, NV — Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has asked his campaign spokesman to resign for tweeting a story that falsely alleged Marco Rubio insulted the bible.

Cruz tells reporters he asked for Rick Tyler’s resignation. Rubio has blasted Cruz for the incident and asked whether Cruz would fire anyone involved.

Cruz says Tyler is “a good man” and deleted the tweet once he found it was false.

Cruz is telling reporters: “We are not a campaign that is going to question the faith of another candidate for president.”

Tyler says he believed the report that Rubio, upon seeing Cruz’ father and a staffer reading the Bible told the Cruz staffer “that book doesn’t have many answers.” When the Rubio camp denounced the Cruz reposting, arguing instead that Rubio said “it has all the answers in it” about the Bible – which was confirmed on video footage, the Cruz campaign apologized and ousted Tyler.

GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, who along with Rubio has repeatedly called Cruz a liar over the past couple of weeks, tweeted that Cruz has now apologized to both the Ben Carson and Marco Rubio campaigns, calling the Texas senator “a fraud.”
