    I saw this, apparently someone used this tactic in Alaska and it was effective to get the vote out, very fucked up though

    Ted Cruz on Saturday evening defended a mailer sent out by his campaign that has been criticized by Iowa's secretary of state as "misleading" and a violation of "the spirit of the Iowa caucuses.”

    "I will apologize to no one for using every tool we can to encourage Iowa voters to come out and vote," Cruz said, speaking to reporters before a rally in Sioux City, Iowa.
