Clinton and Sanders in Virtual Tie, Trump Only Second Place

It took until this morning, but now the first results of this presidential election cycle are finally in. Hillary Clinton won a slight victory over Bernie Sanders, but both got the same number of delegates in Iowa. Martin O’Maley suspended his campaign.

The other New York candidate – Donald Trump – did not fulfill his promise of “always winning” and lost to Ted Cruz. Marco Rubio came into a strong third place in the Republican caucuses.

Cruz Attacks Trump’s “New York Values”

A new Ted Cruz ad attacks Donald Trump for his “New York Values.” The commercial was released by Cruz himself (and not his PAC) and is aimed at voters in the upcoming Iowa caucus.

The ad paints Trump as pro-choice and as feeling superior to the people of Iowa.

“I lived in New York City in Manhattan all my life, okay, so, you know, my views are a little bit different than if I lived in Iowa.”
