“Everybody understands that the values in New York City are socially liberal and pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage...and focus on money and the media.” - Texas Senator Ted Cruz
What you may not know however is that before he criticized New Yorkers for their love of money, Cruz received enormous sums of cash from the Empire State - hauling in nearly $12 million in campaign cash from Wall Street executives, more than any other GOP candidate except for Jeb Bush.
Of course this should come as no surprise. Especially since it was recently revealed that Cruz financed his campaign for US Senate in-part through a loan from New York-based Goldman Sachs, where his wife served as an executive.
Not surprisingly, residents of the Big Apple, including Donald Trump and the New York Daily News, didn't take too kindly to Cruz's comments.
