Cruz: ‘Donald Trump, Like Hillary Clinton, Is a Rich New York Liberal’

‘Donald Trump’s adopting the rhetoric of a populist’

Cruz: Trump a 'rich, New York liberal' (The Hill)

Ted Cruz on Friday kept his firepower focused on Republican presidential rival Donald Trump as the Texas senator seeks to shore up support in the South heading into Super Tuesday next week.

"Donald Trump, like Hillary Clinton, is a rich, New York liberal," Cruz said at a rally in Nashville, Tenn., riffing on the businessman in a line of attack he used prior to the Iowa caucuses early this month, which he won.

"You have been paying off these people for 40 years," Cruz said of Trump's past donations to politicians, saying that he "helped put Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in power."
