Republican Senator Ted Cruz wore out his welcome in New York like years ago, yet, the guy is campaigning in New York trying to get people to vote for him. Of course, that’s not gonna happen as is evident in a message from a fellow New Yorker when Cruz visited the Bronx yesterday – “Get out of the Bronx!,” Cruz heard, and different variations of that message.

Cruz is so hated in New York, even his own Republican friends are talking about taking drastic steps if he becomes the nominee. In an interview on Fox Business News, New York Congressman Peter King said he’ll “get some cyanide” if Cruz is the nominee.

“With Donald Trump, I’ve had some real issues with him. On the other hand, in no way am I comparing him to Ted Cruz,” King said. “Ted Cruz — anyone in New York who even thinks of voting for Ted Cruz is a nut!”

“What if Ted Cruz is the nominee, Congressman King?” host Trish Regan asked. “What if Ted Cruz is the nominee — what do you do, then?”

“I tell you, I don’t know — I’ll get some cyanide,” King said. “I don’t know what I’ll do. I mean, I’ll just — you know, not gonna tell you.”
