It’s a line he’s used against Donald Trump before — that he represents “New York values.” But when Texas Senator [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] used the line, “Not a lot of conservatives come out of Manhattan,” in the Fox Business Channel debate, he not only raised the ire of Trump, but of many well-known conservatives in Manhattan.
