ABC’s Jon Karl: ‘New York Values’ Attack May Have Been a ‘Master Stroke By Ted Cruz’

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” the chief White House correspondent for ABC News Jon Karl said Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s “New York values” attack on his rival Donald Trump “may have been a master stroke.”

Karl said, “Well, it sure looks that way, absolutely in Iowa. But, George, I have to say, when Ted Cruz came out with this New York values attack, it looked like it was a gaffe. Trump had a great moment in the debate. But what’s it done since? It has driven everybody back to that interview 20 years ago with Tim Russert where Donald Trump says he is pro-choice, pro-gays in the military and does it citing the fact that he is from New York, not from Iowa. It may have been a master stroke by Ted Cruz.”
