A New Subway Line Unveiled for Republican Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz

“You’re running on an anti-immigrant platform, and you’re speaking in the Bronx,” Rodrigo Venegas told Cruz. “You should not be here."
It was during a Republican presidential candidate debate in South Carolina in January that Sen. Cruz accused fellow Republican candidate Donald Trump, a billionaire New York City developer, of having 'New York City values.'
"Asked what he meant by 'New York values,' Cruz defined the term as values held by liberal politicians who reject charter schools, school choice and support for fearless police officers," write Alcorn and Greene.
“Those are the values, the values of the New York liberal politicians that have been hammering the people of this great state,” Cruz said, tagging de Blasio as the worst offender.
And that brings us back to the new subway line that Cruz was asked to take on Wednesday. "New Yorkers are joining the Daily News in giving a big “FU” to Ted Cruz, Mayor de Blasio said Thursday," writes Ed Durkin in Friday's Daily News.
Rather ironically, Fox News host Megyn Kelly stated, "...and it doesn't feel like they're feeling the Cruz train right now," writes Peter Weber for The Week. Obviously she hadn't read the Daily News headlines.
Even conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer admitted that Cruz's Bronx tour "will bruise more than just Cruz's ego," adds Weber.
