Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz on Sunday said primary rival Donald Trump has a record that is difficult to differentiate from that of Democratic primary front-runner Hillary Clinton.

{mosads}“I believe the only way to beat the Democrats is to run a candidate that has a significantly different record,” Cruz said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“I think if we nominate a candidate who has the same record as Hillary Clinton on partial-birth abortion, the same record as Hillary Clinton on ObamaCare and socialized medicine, the same record as Hillary Clinton on granting amnesty to 12 million people here illegally and allowing them to become citizens, and for that matter the same record as Hillary Clinton on the Wall Street bailouts and the Obama stimulus, I don’t think that’s a path to victory,” he added.

Cruz also said national polls show Trump losing head-to-head to Clinton in a hypothetical general election matchup.

“Well, listen, the national polling has consistently shown that head-to-head Donald loses to Hillary, and head-to-head I beat Hillary Clinton,” he said.

“I think the way we win is to follow Reagan’s admonition that we paint in bold colors, not pale pastels,” he added.
