Sen. Ted Cruz announced that he had asked for the resignation of his senior communications director, Rick Tyler, for spreading a false report about Sen. Marco Rubio, the Huffington Post reports.
Cruz said that Tyler was “a good man” but that he had “committed a grave error of judgment” and that “even if it was true, our campaign should not have sent it.”
New York Times: “Mr. Cruz has been facing mounting allegations of dirty tricks by Mr. Rubio’s team over the false story. And the Cruz campaign has also been getting hammered after his allies spread a false rumor that Dr. Ben Carson was suspending his campaign — just as voting in the Iowa caucuses began.”Save to Favorites
