Trump Calls for ‘New Election’ After Accusing Cruz of Fraud in Iowa

Donald Trump was furious with the result in Iowa and has called for a new election based on Cruz’s false news that Ben Carson had quit the race.

The Hill reports:

Cruz’s campaign fired back at Trump in a statement emailed to media outlets.

“Reality just hit the reality star — he lost Iowa and now nobody is talking about him, so he’s popping off on Twitter,” said Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler. “There are support groups for Twitter addiction, perhaps he should find his local chapter.”

Cruz came under fire in the days leading up to the Iowa caucuses for distributing a misleading mailer that attempted to shame recipients into turning out to vote for the Texas senator.

Following his decisive win over the GOP field, Cruz was accused by fellow presidential candidate Ben Carson of spreading a false rumor that Carson was dropping out of the race in order to sabotage the retired neurosurgeon’s campaign.
Cruz later apologized.

At his first post-Iowa rally in Milford, N.H., Trump called Cruz “dirty,” adding “what he did to Ben Carson was a disgrace.”

Cruz won the Iowa caucus with more than 27 percent of the vote. Trump, who finished second, held the lead in polls of the state before the ballots were cast.
