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

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 ClintonThe dangerous erosion of Democratic Party foundations The Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Facebook - Democrats see victory in a voting rights defeat Left laughs off floated changes to 2024 ticket 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.
