NEW YORK (AP) — Ted Cruz’s attempt to upset native son Donald Trump in the Empire State primary has so far turned on three words: “New York values.”
Cruz’s use of that phrase as a putdown in a GOP debate in January has hung around his neck like an anchor, particularly in New York City, where’s he’s been skewered in the tabloids and repeatedly heckled at campaign events.
But Cruz is forging forward in his quest to pick up delegates, insisting that he wasn’t criticizing the state as a whole, only the policies often synonymous with New York.
“They are the values of the liberal Democratic politicians like Andrew Cuomo, like Anthony Weiner, like Elliot Spitzer, like Charlie Rangel – all of whom Donald Trump has supported,” Cruz said during a campaign stop in the Bronx. “If you want to know what liberal democratic values are, follow Donald Trump’s checkbook.”
