Ted Cruz campaigns in New York

- Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, met with faith leaders inside a Bronx restaurant for over an hour. Supporters as well as protesters showed up.

Two protestors with the Latin hip-hop group Rebel Diaz interrupted the presidential hopeful while he spoke with faith leaders privately behind a curtain. The two were escorted out by police.

The meeting was put in place by Democratic state Sen. Ruben Diaz of the Bronx. Diaz says he will not vote for a Republican in this election. The faith leaders gathered with Cruz to discuss values.

Just two months ago, Cruz made controversial comments about New York values in an attack on trump.  But Wednesday he said those words were for liberal democratic politicians. He even took a verbal punch at Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Of course the Texas senator thrilled about the Wisconsin victory, claiming it was a turning point in this election, one that won't benefit republican front runner Donald Trump.

The New York primary is on April 19.
