Ted Cruz's 5 Best Moments in Thursday's Debate
Ted Cruz racked up a powerful victory during Thursday night's Republican presidential debate in Detroit, Mich. Both Cruz and Marco Rubio attacked front-runner Donald Trump, but Cruz proved more adept. In a debate which opened with Trump discussing the size of his hands (and perhaps something else?), Cruz was able to dominate the narrative and win the hearts of viewers in a focus group with Frank Luntz.
Hit 96% with my group.

Here are 5 of Cruz's stellar moments throughout the debate:
1. For 40 Years, Donald Has Been Part of DC Corruption Early on in the debate, Cruz acknowledged the anger of Trump's supporters, but he declared that "for 40 years, Donald has been part of the corruption in Washington that you're angry about." Cruz added that "you're not going to stop the corruption in Washington by supporting someone who has supported liberal Democrats for four decades, from Jimmy Carter to John Kerry to Hillary Clinton."
