Cruz Apologizes to Carson After Accusations of Dirty Campaign Tricks

Carson Bashes Cruz for Dirty Tricks: 'Never a More Tainted Victory'

Trump Slams 'Unfair' Media Coverage of Iowa Caucus Loss


Donald Trump unleashed a flurry of tweets this morning accusing Sen. Ted Cruz of committing voter fraud in Iowa. 

Trump called for a new election to be held and for Tuesday's votes for Cruz to be "nullified."


UPDATE, 11:40am ET: Cruz's communications director, Rick Tyler, has since responded with a statement. 

"Reality just hit the reality star - he lost Iowa and now nobody is talking about him, so he’s popping off on Twitter. There are support groups for Twitter addiction, perhaps he should find his local chapter."


Ben Carson's campaign slammed Cruz after the caucus, accusing them of spreading a false rumor to caucus-goers that Carson would be dropping out of the race. 

Carson said on Fox and Friends yesterday that his wife was at a caucus precinct where this went on.

"The organizer told her, 'I'm so glad you're here so you can set the record straight and she did. And we actually won in that precinct," he said.

Carson, who finished fourth with 10% of votes, said he believed the Cruz campaign's tactics contributed to his worse-than-expected performance.

The Cruz campaign later apologized for their actions, saying that CNN erroneously reported that Carson was going home to Florida after the caucus, and not going onto New Hampshire.

Carson's campaign quickly clarified that the retired neurosurgeon would only be making a brief stop-over before going back on the campaign trail. 

Cruz said the campaign failed to communicate the second piece of information to people on the ground.
