Cruz asks for resignation of spokesman after Twitter controversy

Posted:
LAS VEGAS (AP) -

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has asked his campaign spokesman to resign for tweeting a story that falsely alleged Marco Rubio insulted the bible.

Cruz tells reporters he asked for Rick Tyler's resignation. Rubio has blasted Cruz for the incident and asked whether Cruz would fire anyone involved.

Cruz says Tyler is "a good man" and deleted the tweet once he found it was false.

Cruz is telling reporters: "We are not a campaign that is going to question the faith of another candidate for president."
