Cruz Hits Trump on Abortion, ‘New York Values’ with New Ad

Trump: ‘I am pro-choice in every respect’

Cruz, two super PACs hit Trump on abortion, 'New York values' (CNN)
 

Ted Cruz and two allied super PACs launched a television broadside against Donald Trump on Monday, dedicating big money behind ads attacking the billionaire for "New York values," particularly past support for partial-birth abortion.

The ads use identical quotes from Trump's 1999 interview on "Meet the Press" in which he declares "I am pro-choice in every respect."

Campaigns and super PACs are not allowed to coordinate on advertising, but the unified front against Trump comes just one week before the Iowa caucuses and continue Cruz's theme of painting the New York billionaire as out-of-touch with Iowa values.
