It’s totally false and completely reckless of CNN to do that without reaching out to the campaign first. I know you and FOX would never do that and go to air with something that is just wrong. And I don’t know who’s pushing it out but I can tell you that Ted Cruz today has been spreading it around because they’re scared that Marco Rubio is going to win Florida. And it’s the same kind of nonsense he did to Ben Carson.
In February the Cruz Camp spread lies that Dr. Ben Carson was leaving the race before the Iowa Caucus. Dr. Carson never recovered from the dirty trick.
