Yeah, the Don't Sugarcoat It Award once again goes to the New York Daily News, who won't let their readers forget that "New York Values" dig Ted Cruz made in Iowa.

Why do candidates pit states against each other anyway? It nearly always backfires.
Anyhow, the pro-Kasich super PAC "New Day for America" (yeah) also noted that Cruz's vagabond blues aren't likely to melt away...New York is giving Rafael the cold shoulder:

That doesn't top their "nose" ad, but it's definitely reflecting New York's attitude toward Cruz.

And we at C&L don't usually look for opportunities to quote Rep. Peter King, but his recent radio interview did have some doozies on Cruz. Via Buzzfeed:

Any New Yorker who even thinks of voting for Ted Cruz should have their head examined...here’s a guy who refused to sign onto the 9/11 health care act for the cops and fireman. Here’s a guy who talks about New York values.”

“New York keeps going forward,” King continued, citing the city’s response to 9/11. “We’re tough, and to have some guy like Ted Cruz with cowboy boots walk around criticizing us. Look, I hope he gets the cold shoulder and other things from every New Yorker. Send him back where he belongs. He’s a phony, and that was all off the record by the way. I don’t want anyone listening. That was all off the record.”

“I just can’t stand that guy,” he added.

Can you help us out?
