Ted Cruz Visits WTMJ/Milwaukee's Charlie Sykes Insight Event
March 25, 2016 at 6:10 AM (PT)
TED CRUZ's appearance at SCRIPPS News-Talk WTMJ-A/MILWAUKEE's annual CHARLIE SYKES INSIGHT event on WEDNESDAY (3/23) made news when CRUZ responded to SYKES' questions about why it took so long for CRUZ to attack GOP frontrunner DONALD TRUMP by saying that he didn't want to be "roadkill."
CRUZ told SYKES that other candidates who took TRUMP to task early on "ended up as roadkill," adding, "I am very strongly committed on the anti-roadkill approach. And so our approach was quite simple, we needed to build our base first. We needed to get my positive message out, my record out and build and assemble our team.” CRUZ has tangled with TRUMP more directly in recent weeks, battling over criticism of each other's wives while TRUMP repeatedly refers to CRUZ as "Lyin' TED" and CRUZ calls TRUMP a "coward."
