Ted Cruz Concerned San Bernardino Was ‘Radical Islamic Terrorism Here at Home’

cruzRepublican presidential candidate Ted Cruz suggested the San Bernardino shooting might have been caused by radical Islamic terrorism in America on Thursday. According to the Washington Post, the junior Republican senator from Texas addressed the shooting during remarks at the Republican Jewish Coalition. “At this point, the details of what happened in San Bernardino are still unclear,” he said. “But our prayers are with the families of those who were murdered and those who were shot. And all of us are deeply concerned that this is yet another manifestation of terrorism, radical Islamic terrorism here at home.

Recently, Ohio Governor and Republican presidential hopeful John Kasich released an ad slamming Trump over an outcropping of that controversy, namely Trump’s mockery of a reporter’s disability. The ad, entitled “Is he worthy?”, ends with an intriguing question:

On pretty much every count that matters to a majority of the Republican base, Trump runs circles around Reagan. For example, everyone knows that Ronald Reagan kicked off his 1980 general election presidential campaign with a
