Remember the supposed Cruz and Kasich alliance that formed to defeat Trump? Well, Cruz is responding to it…and Kasich isn’t happy.
Ted Cruz, whose campaign announced an alliance with that of John Kasich’s earlier this week, on Thursday denied to reporters that such an alliance existed.
Cruz’s comments came during a press availability with journalists, according to CNN’s Teddy Schleifer:
Cruz: "John Kasich made the decision, in his own political self-interest, to withdraw from Indiana."

On Sunday, the Cruz and Kasich campaigns both issued statements announcing a strategic alliance aimed at stopping Donald Trump from reaching the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination.
“(O)ur campaign will focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Gov. Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico,” said Jeff Roe, Cruz’s campaign manager.
Here was the response from Team Kasich:
I can't stand liars.
