GOP presidential candidate Sen.Ted Cruz (R-TX) won a “prominent New York City straw poll” after commenting on “New York values.”

On Saturday the Resurgent posted on Twitter: “Ted Cruz Wins Prominent New York City Straw Poll AFTER Insulting ‘New York Values.'”

According to the Resurgent, The Metropolitan Republican Club in New York City held its straw poll after Cruz’s statements criticizing “New York Values,” and Cruz won first place.

GOP frontrunner Donald Trump said Cruz insulted New Yorkers when he criticized New York Values during the GOP debate on Thursday night in South Carolina.

Following the debate, Cruz said, “Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio have all demanded an apology, and I’m happy to apologize.”

“I apologize to the millions of New Yorkers who have been let down by the liberal politicians in that state,” Cruz told reporters. “I apologize to all the cops and the firefighters and 9/11 heroes who had no choice but to stand and turn their backs on Mayor de Blasio because Mayor de Blasio over and over again stands with the looters and the criminals rather than the brave men and women of blue.”
