Ted Cruz has apologized to fellow GOP Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson after controversial campaign tactics as the Iowa caucuses were underway.
According to The Hill:
“Iowa Republican caucus winner Ted Cruz on Tuesday apologized to fellow candidate GOP presidential Ben Carson for spreading a rumor that the former neurosurgeon had dropped out of the race.
What the team then should have done was send around the follow-up statement from the Carson campaign clarifying that he was indeed staying in the race when that came out.
“This was a mistake from our end, and for that I apologize to Dr. Carson,” Cruz said.
CNN had reported that Carson was planning on going home to Florida after Monday night’s caucuses, which the Cruz campaign misinterpreted as a report that he was dropping out of the race.”
