Ted Cruz ‘incredulous’ as Mike Huckabee aide blocks him from media at Kim Davis rally

Published

on

Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) attempt to show support for Rowan County, Kentucky clerk Kim Davis on Tuesday was foiled by fellow Republican Mike Huckabee’s campaign team, the New York Times reported.

The Texas Tea Party member was seen at a rally backing Davis in Grayson, where Davis was jailed after refusing orders from a federal court and the Supreme Court to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. However, when Cruz tried to talk to the media after Davis’ release, the Times noted that “an aide to Mr. Huckabee blocked the path of Mr. Cruz, who appeared incredulous.”

Huckabee, who like Cruz is part of the Republican presidential candidate field, was then seen alongside Davis and spoke on her behalf.

“Meanwhile, Mr. Cruz stood off to the side, keeping an unusually low profile during the event,” the Times noted.

Buzzfeed’s Chris Geidner later posted a picture of what he called a “very sad Ted Cruz” watching the event:

According to Real Clear Politics, Cruz has won the support of 6.5 percent of GOP voters, with Huckabee two percentage points behind him.

Update: MSNBC host Rachel Maddow showed footage of the encounter, which can be seen below.
