Cruz petitions for face-off with 'Ducking Donald'
Cruz, who earlier Tuesday challenged Trump to a one-on-one debate, is petitioning supporters to sign on for a face-off between the two leading GOP contenders.
“If Donald Trump is afraid of Megyn Kelly, then Ted Cruz is willing to debate ‘Ducking Donald’ one-on-one,” Cruz’s campaign wrote on its website
“Ted Cruz is willing to stand up defend his record, anytime, any place. Why isn't Ducking Donald?”
The site asks supporters to affirm: “Yes, Donald Trump should debate Ted Cruz.”
Beside the message is an image of Trump photoshopped onto the cartoon character Donald Duck.
Trump announced earlier Tuesday that he will not participate in Thursday's Fox News GOP presidential debate, saying he doesn't think moderator Megyn Kelly would be fair to him.
