Cruz Slams Trump During Oshkosh Visit

For the third straight day, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is making campaign stops in Wisconsin.

   "Wisconsin is a battleground." he told supporters at an event in Oshkosh.

                He also said Donald Trump doesn’t know what he’s talking about when it comes to policy.

After the event, Cruz again fired back at Trump for personal reasons. This time, responding to an article from a tabloid claiming Cruz had an affair, and saying it’s a story planted by the Trump campaign.

                Cruz said, "This National Inquirer story is garbage. It is complete and utter lies, it is a tabloid smear. And it is a smear that has come from Donald Trump and his henchmen.”

                It is this kind of talk and that Governor Scott Walker (R-Wisconsin) says makes him happy he left the race when he did.

                At an event in Milwaukee, Walker said, "For goodness sake a couple weeks ago we were talking about the size of Donald Trump's hand and what people were saying about that. We don't ever have any discussion about the national debt, about real issues that actually affect what the president is doing."

                Walker said he will announce next week if he'll make an endorsement in the Republican field, but already said his views align more with Cruz and Governor John Kasich (R- Ohio).

               

                As for the focus on Wisconsin, candidates will continue to make stops in the state.

                Saturday, Democrat Bernie Sanders will be in Madison.

                Hillary Clinton's campaign announced stops Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, and La Crosse.

Walker said, "As the governor of the state, regardless of party, I think that's a good thing. The more contact our voters can have with the candidates, the better off it is for the people of this state."
