Cruz to Texas Delegates: I Will Not Be A "Servile Puppy Dog" To A Man Who Slandered My Wife


Sen. Ted Cruz addresses the Texas delegation at a Thursday morning breakfast in Cleveland. Cruz explained why he made the speech he did last night at the Republican convention and took questions from delegates.

"I am not in the habit of supporting people who attack my wife and attack my father," Cruz explained. "That pledge was not a blanket commitment that if you go and slander and attack Heidi, that I'm going to nonetheless come like a servile puppy dog and say thank you very much for maligning my wife and maligning my father."

Donald Trump responded later Thursday morning on Twitter: "Other than a small group of people who have suffered massive and embarrassing losses, the party is VERY united. Great love in the arena!"
