Huckabee Slams Cruz for Campaigning at Home of Gay NYC Businessmen
Mike Huckabee has pulled the religion card on Ted Cruz after he slammed Cruz for campaigning at the home of two gay businessmen from New York City.
I'll never play political games with my faith. We shouldn't say one thing for votes, and another for NYC money. https://t.co/w44of59oWq

The Hill reports:
The story, published in April 2015, describes how two prominent gay hotel owners hosted Cruz for a meet and greet in their New York City penthouse.
According to the article, Cruz softened his tone during the event in order to court the more moderate Republicans, saying he wouldn’t love his daughters any less if they were gay and that he believed marriage laws should be determined by the states.
Cruz has taken heavy criticism after he attacked “New York values” despite relying on donors in the city for campaign contributions.
