Cruz makes campaign stop in SA ahead of Texas primary

Senator takes shots at Trump at Monday's rally

SAN ANTONIO – Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz was in San Antonio on Monday for one of the final stops on his "Cruz to Victory" campaign trail.

He spoke to a packed house of hundreds at the Shrine Auditorium. Cruz took the stage about 3 p.m. and told his supporters, "It's great to be home."

Both former Gov. Rick Perry and current Gov. Greg Abbott were also in town to show their support for Cruz.

Perry and Abbott told the crowd that Cruz is the only candidate that has and will beat Donald Trump.

Cruz also took jabs at Trump's campaign, saying there is a tape that the New York Times has not released of Trump saying he will not follow through on his own immigration policy.

"The New York Times has a tape of Donald saying, 'Everything I'm saying on immigration, I'm just saying because the voters like it. I don't intend to do any of it,'" Cruz said. "Now The New York Times cannot release the tapes without Donald's permission. So I call on Donald Trump, allow The New York Times to release the tape."

Cruz supporters said they expect the senator to win Tuesday's Texas primary.

"I hope he does well," supporter Terri Alonzo said. "Everybody I know is voting for him. However, you never know, but I think Texas will come through."
