Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee had strong words for his former GOP Presidential foe Ted Cruz.
Huckabee blasted the Texas Senator for controversial tactics in Iowa, also chastising Cruz for blaming everything on CNN instead of taking responsibility.
According to The Hill:
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is criticizing Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz for what he calls “low-life, sleazy politics.”
Huckabee, who suspended his presidential campaign after a poor performance in Iowa, attacked Cruz’s campaign for telling people on the night of the caucuses that rival Ben Carson would be dropping out of the race.
“I can attest to the fact that even in our campaign there were many efforts to try and say that people shouldn’t vote for me or Rick Santorum or Ben Carson,” Huckabee said on his podcast this week, Buzzfeed News reported.
“The Cruz people said it would be a wasted vote and they should vote for Cruz. It wouldn’t have made a difference for any of use but it is the kind of low-life, sleazy politics people truly get sick of.”
Huckabee noted that Cruz apologized to Carson after his campaign spread a story that Carson had dropped out. But he added that Cruz “deflected blame to CNN” claiming they had reported that Carson was out.
