Carson’s campaign confirmed the secret meeting to The Daily Beast, but blasted Cruz’s team for leaking the news, accusing him of trying to improve his image.
Carson has slammed Cruz's campaign for wrongly telling Iowa voters that the retired neurosurgeon was dropping out of the race on the night of the caucuses.
“We weren’t going to comment to the press on it, but it seems pretty clear that the other party involved had a different agenda,” Jason Osborne, a senior communications strategist for Carson’s campaign, told The Daily Beast. “How else could we perceive that to be?”
Osborne added that the meeting “did not go well,” and that Carson ended the meeting.
“We disagree on accountability and culpability,” he said.
