HOLLIS, N.H. — Ted Cruz tried to tie billionaire front-runner Donald Trump to the Washington, D.C., establishment last night, while bragging that his campaign had raised $700,000 in the hours since Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad said the Texas U.S. senator should be defeated.

“Let me encourage other members of the establishment — keep supporting Donald Trump because every time you do, what it’s doing is you’re telling conservatives across the country where you stand and who stands with you,” Cruz said last night.

Cruz took aim at Trump and his other chief rival — Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio — with a single one-liner, suggesting Rubio’s momentum was fading and Trump was backed by powerful interests.

“We’re seeing the Washington establishment abandoning Marco Rubio and unifying behind Donald Trump,” said Cruz. “And we’re seeing conservatives coming together and unifying behind our campaign. If conservatives unite, we win.”
