Cruz on NH Race: 'Real Winner Is the Conservative Grassroots'
Ted Cruz spoke to supporters as votes were being counted to determine the third-place finisher in New Hampshire.
Cruz said that his campaign far exceeded the predictions of the Washington and media elites.
"Once again, the talking heads and the Washington insiders were confident that our wave of support would break against the rock of the Granite State," he said.
"That a conservative, we were told, could not do well in the state of New Hampshire. We were told that over and over again. And tonight, the men and women across this great state proved them wrong."
Cruz congratulated his opponents but said that "the real winner is the conservative grassroots."
