Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Monday called the Drudge Report an extension of Donald Trump’s campaign, prompting pushback from the popular conservative news website.

Cruz told The Mike Slater Show that while the “Drudge Report over the years has done a good job highlighting the excesses of the left,” it’s become critical of him recently.”

Most days they have a six-month-old article that is some attack on me, and it’s whatever the Trump campaign is pushing that day will be the banner headline on Drudge.”

“By the way, they no longer cover news,” Cruz continued. “When we win a state, suddenly the state doesn’t matter. You know Colorado, there was no red siren on Drudge when we won all 34 delegates in Colorado.”

Drudge responded by posting a link to a January interview where Cruz remarked positively, “We have got the internet, we have got the Drudge Report.”

Drudge also linked to a Washington Post article headlined, “Ted Cruz’s war with Matt Drudge could become a huge problem for his campaign.”
