The Daily Caller reported today that the Ted Cruz campaign has denied any connection with a fake Facebook page on which South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy announced that he’d changed his mind about endorsing Marco Rubio and was now backing Cruz.
Our campaign had absolutely nothing to do with this fraudulent Facebook post. https://t.co/OGMlAsnLPm

This kind of deception is deplorable and nothing like it would be tolerated by this campaign. https://t.co/ZUqtCu2Kme

According to the Daily Caller, a post surfaced Monday in which Gowdy announced, “It is official, I have changed my mind. My previous endorsement of Marco Rubio was a grave mistake… To all my Christian and Conservative friends in South Carolina, I hereby formally endorse Ted Cruz for President of the United States.” The page has since been taken down, but speculation over who created it in the first place runs the gamut.

@tedcruz a statement to your supporters denouncing these underhanded tactics should happen.

@tedcruz You need to elevate your rhetoric to a more Presidential level. Stop answering the charges of others, focus on getting message out!

@tedcruz We are praying for you. Please take care of yourself. Truth has no agenda and wise people will see the truth. God bless you.

@tedcruz I smell trump behind this. Trey is a lawyer. Maybe he should get facts before accusing

I bet Rubio's backers did this to slander Cruz.
Cruz doesn't need Gowdy.

@tedcruz The Rubio campaign probably put that page up to try to pin it on you.

@tedcruz Typical "Operation Gladio" false flag tactic. Good bet that the page was created by Rubio's staff to create a false narrative.

@tedcruz get your house in order Ted, your "team" seems to be creating way too much grey in your campaign efforts.
