Cruz’s Campaign Manager: Christie “Turned Over His Political Testicles”

Christie fired insults at Cruz both last night and this morning, calling Cruz's refusal to endorse Trump "selfish."

New Jersey governor Chris Christie criticized Ted Cruz during a speech to delegates at the Republican National Convention this morning, at around the same time that Cruz’s campaign manager said Christie “turned over his political testicles long ago.”

Cruz’s campaign manager, Jeff Roe, made the comment on the Chris Stigall Show this morning.

Cruz refused to back Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump during his speech at the RNC last night, which garnered a collective “boo” from the audience.

“I think it was awful, and quite frankly I think it was selfish,” Christie told reporters last night, referring to Cruz’s refusal to endorse Trump.

Christie slammed Cruz again this morning during the N.J. delegation breakfast, calling him “the most disliked person in either party on Capitol Hill.”

“That’s who he is, and it’s why he is the most disliked person in either party on Capitol Hill,” Christie said this morning. “That was a full display last night.”

Roe said on the Stigall Show that he doesn’t “take what [Christie] has to say with any meaning. You know, he embarrassed himself pretty quickly in this.”

Several reporters referred to Christie’s lengthy speech this morning as “odd.”
