A new ad produced by a super-PAC supporting Republican presidential candidate John Kasich slams rival Ted CruzRafael (Ted) Edward CruzSanders meets with MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred Cruz knocks Chick-fil-A over past donation: It has 'lost its way' Overnight Energy: Relocated BLM staff face salary cuts | UN report calls for drastic action on climate change | California asks EPA to reconsider emissions rule MORE for lying.

The 30-second ad, titled "Nose," was produced by New Day for America.


"Many just call him Lyin' Ted," the ad starts out, referring to a nickname coined for the Texas senator by front-runner Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpStates slashed 4,400 environmental agency jobs in past decade: study Biden hammers Trump over video of world leaders mocking him Iran building hidden arsenal of short-range ballistic missiles in Iraq: report MORE.

The ad shows an image of Cruz, his nose growing throughout the spot and wrapping around his neck.

The ad called the Texas senator out for his campaign's dissemination of rumors that Ben Carson was dropping out before the Iowa caucuses. 

The ad also says Cruz lied about "being the best for the GOP when polls show he can't even beat Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonThree legal scholars say Trump should be impeached; one thinks otherwise Report: Barr attorney can't provide evidence Trump was set up by DOJ Jayapal pushes back on Gaetz's questioning of impeachment witness donations to Democrats MORE."

"If Ted Cruz's mouth is moving, he's lying," the ad concludes.

Kasich's campaign has argued that it will do well in the upcoming contests and has touted its poll numbers in head-to-head match ups with Clinton, even as many in the GOP call for him to drop out. 

Cruz has in the past called Kasich a "spoiler" who will keep Cruz from securing the nomination before the convention this summer.
