Will Ted Cruz Keep His Bizarre Attack Ad Running After Trump Pulls His?

Donald Trump's campaign just removed a negative attack ad on Ted Cruz, which started running Tuesday. The ad labeled Cruz as a phony and a "Washington insider," while scolding Cruz for spreading false rumors about Ben Carson. 


Corey Lewandowski, Trump's campaign manager, explained that they are going "all positive" into South Carolina, which may push Cruz from airing his latest spot aimed at Trump. The bizarre ad features children playing house with Trump and Hillary dolls and warns voters that Donald Trump is a fake Republican devoid of family values. 

Below, watch the attack ad Trump's campaign pulled, and the Cruz attack ad that's still running.
