Cruz: Trump Donated to Blago

By Nick Gale, WLS-AM news

(CHICAGO) Ted Cruz is stumping in Illinois today.

Speaking in Rockford, Cruz said voters can’t trust Donald Trump and brought up ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who is still serving time for political corruption.

“Donald Trump gave $7,000 to Rod Blagojevich. That’s a fairly remarkable legacy for a Republican candidate for president,” Cruz said. “He gave $12,500 to the Democratic Party of Cook County.”

Cruz is also making stops in Peoria, Decatur, Springfield and Glen Ellyn.

Cruz has been casting Trump as a hypocrite for weeks, noting his past donations to Democrats including Hillary Clinton, but Cruz also says he will support Trump if he becomes the GOP nominee.
