If you watch Ted Cruz lately, he looks to have moved on from the Iowa Caucus but Dr. Ben Carson isn’t giving up this fight anytime soon.
Carson’s argument against Crus is significant because Cruz is trying to consolidate the evangelical base of the Republican Party and he has issues with the way things are being handled. One of Ted’s few remaining obstacles is Carson, who is still popular among evangelicals.
“By their fruit you will know them,” said Carson, quoting Matthew 7:20. “You know people, not by what they say, but what they do. And how their lives are led.”
“I hope you will judge all the other people who are running for this position by the same standards,” he continued. “I think if we do that, we are less likely to make a mistake.”
One of the first questions asked of Carson is whether or not he was calling Cruz a hypocrite, Carson said, “I didn’t say a word about Ted Cruz. What I said is what we need to be able to do is look at a person’s life … look at the way a person treats other people, and make a judgment.”
Carson later admitted he had called the press conference regarding the campaign tactics of the Texas senator. Watch the presser here:
