When you’re at the top the attacks come at you from everywhere. In this case it was a NY Times article that, as Levin suggested last night, was fed to them by some Republican operative working for another campaign. But just like the Trump-ed up birther story, it’s another non-story.
Ted Cruz explains below:
It’s no surprise that Ted Cruz is actually human and makes errors like the rest of us. As he said, the loan against his assets has been disclosed in a variety of other ways so it’s not something he’s been trying to hide. And he’ll amend the filing to fix that should the reports be correct.
There is no conspiracy here. Cruz was going up against Dewhurst who was spending millions upon millions of dollars. It takes money to compete at this level and Cruz was certainly the underdog.
So as I said, nothing to see here. If this is all they have against Cruz, if this is all the dirt they can find on him, then this ‘smoking gun’ is nothing more than a broken water pistol.
