Protesters tell Cruz 'get out of the Bronx'


Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz was met by a group of shouting protesters when he showed up for a meet-and-greet at a New York City restaurant.

Protesters shouted at Cruz as he arrived at a restaurant in the Bronx on Wednesday. They told Cruz he should "get out of the Bronx."

He replied only that he was "happy to be here."

As he met privately with diners, New York City police officers rushed into the restaurant to eject two protesters who began shouting at Cruz.

Cruz supporters who attended the event said they were excited about the momentum he picked up after his primary win in Wisconsin.
