In a cryptic tweet, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump threatened to “spill the beans” on Heidi Cruz, Texas Senator [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore]’s wife.

Trump had originally deleted a tweet reading roughly the same thing, only he’d tagged Cruz’s official Senate Twitter account in it.

Exactly what “beans” Trump may have to spill on Heidi Cruz is not clear, but Trump has made similar threats against the owners of the Chicago Cubs.

Ted Cruz responded, calling Trump a “coward.”

The Super PAC is run by former adviser to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker Liz Mair. Federal law forbids Super PACs from coordinating with campaigns and there is no evidence Make America Awesome has any connection to the Cruz campaign.
