Over a week ago, the National Enquirer was quoted as attacking Ted Cruz and charging he had multiple affairs.
Cruz reacted indignantly, and called the charges garbage. But over the last week, some people noted he had not directly denied the charges themselves.
Well, on Monday he did. Speaking with Megyn Kelly, Cruz was asked specifically "Have you committed adultery in your marriage?"
Cruz's reply? "I have not. That attack was complete and utter garbage. It was complete lies."
Well there you have it: Cruz gave a complete and emphatic denial when asked the question directly. That may not put to rest cynics and doubters, but it gives great reassurance to people who might have wondered if he was giving a nuanced reply the week before.
