Ted Cruz Defends ‘New York Values’ Jab In Front Of Actual New Yorkers

NEW YORK — As the 6 train rumbled above Westchester Avenue in the Bronx, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) made the case that some New Yorkers share his conservative positions and actually agree with his crack about “New York values.”

“The people of New York know exactly what those values are,” Cruz said Wednesday afternoon at Sabrosura 2, a Chinese-Dominican restaurant where journalists clearly outnumbered the Texas senator’s supporters. “They’re the values of liberal Democratic politicians.”
