Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) “defended distancing himself from Donald Trump, refusing to say he’s voting for Trump and ripping the Republican National Convention’s response to his speech the night before,” The Hill reports.
Said Cruz: “I am not in the habit of supporting people who attack my wife and attack my father… Neither he nor his campaign has taken back a word of what they said about my family.”
He added: “In that speech last night, I did not say a single negative word about Donald Trump. And I’ll tell you, this morning and going forward I don’t intend to say negative things about Donald Trump.”
