Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) went after rival Donald Trump Friday in Nashville, Tenn., likening him to Hillary Clinton and calling him “a rich, New York liberal.”

According to The Hill:

“Donald Trump, like Hillary Clinton, is a rich, New York liberal,” Cruz said at a rally in Nashville, Tenn., riffing on the businessman in a line of attack he used prior to the Iowa caucuses early this month, which he won.

“You have been paying off these people for 40 years,” Cruz said of Trump’s past donations to politicians, saying that he “helped put Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in power.”
“If you’re worried about corruption in Washington, I’m not sure putting him in the White House is the best solution,” Cruz said, arguing he would be reviled by Democrats compared to Trump.
