A new ad produced by a super-PAC supporting Republican presidential candidate John Kasich slams rival Ted CruzRafael (Ted) Edward CruzIn partisan slugfest, can Chip Roy overcome Trump troubles?

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 TrumpGiuliani goes off on Fox Business host after she compares him to Christopher Steele Trump looks to shore up support in Nebraska NYT: Trump had 7 million in debt mostly tied to Chicago project forgiven 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 ClintonGorsuch rejects Minnesota Republican's request to delay House race Biden leads Trump by 6 points in Nevada: poll The Memo: Women could cost Trump reelection 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.
