Cruz Apologizes To Carson For Caucus Controversy

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.”
