Ted Cruz Trashes New York Again in Pennsylvania Campaign Speech

Ted Cruz, who finished a distant third place in New York state, trashed the Empire State in his speech in Hershey, Pennsylvania on Tuesday.

Cruz told Pennsylvania voters they are not puppets of New York as the media would suggest.
This didn’t sit well with some New Yorkers.

New York Post reported:

Ted Cruz was back on the campaign trail Wednesday, sliming New York again in a bid to pick up votes in Tuesday’s Pennsylvania primary.

“Let me tell you what Trump and the media want to convince everyone — that Pennsylvania is a suburb of Manhattan. Manhattan has spoken and Pennsylvania will quietly follow into obedience,” Cruz said, suggesting that pushy New York elites were telling the common folk what to do.

But Manhattan was the only place in the state that Trump did not dominate — losing his home borough to Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

The Texas senator, however, was undaunted, sarcastically adding that, “Donald Trump won his home. Truly a remarkable achievement.”

The latest poll in the Pennsylvania race, conducted by CBC/YouGov, shows Trump leading big with 46 percent to Cruz’s 26 percent and Kasich’s 23 percent.

Cruz had alienated New Yorkers with his knock on “New York values” earlier in the campaign.
