I am starting to think there’s nothing but bad news hanging over the Ted Cruz campaign these days. Campaign ads are being removed from TV or have former porn stars tabbed to play a role, Both Donald Trump and Marco Rubio campaigns are slamming him with a 1-2 punch on calling him out for lying about their positions and today according to the Public Policy Polling, his unfavorables were higher than even Jeb Bush in South Carolina.
Now this! Someone played loose with all facts and truth by creating a Trey Gowdy Facebook page and switching the Congressman’s support from Rubio to Cruz. As you will see, Gowdy went through the roof.
From Daily Caller:
In a statement released by Rubio’s campaign, Gowdy — the chairman of the House Benghazi committee — said: “Its been reported that a fake Facebook page has been used to fool South Carolinians into thinking that I no longer support Marco Rubio and that I’m instead supporting Ted Cruz. Nothing could be further from the truth and I’m demanding that Senator Cruz and his campaign repudiate these dishonest and underhanded tactics.”
The Facebook page has a photo of Gowdy and is called “Trey Gowdy Prayers.” A post on Monday stated: “It is official, I have changed my mind. My previous endorsement of Marco Rubio was a grave mistake…To all my Christian and Conservative friends in South Carolina, I hereby formally endorse Ted Cruz for President of the United States.”
Though there’s no concrete evidence that Cruz’s campaign has anything to do with the Facebook page, Gowdy said: “Unfortunately it appears that the campaign of Senator Ted Cruz may not place the same value on waging a contest based on the truth and facts. In the last week, we have seen a systematic effort by Senator Cruz and his allies to spread false information and outright lies in the hopes of winning votes by appealing to our lowest common denominator.”
Here is Gowdy’s latest interview detailing his support for Rubio:
What do you think about this turn of events? Cruz has stated that he was not part of this scandal and denounced it.
