Sarah Palin's Facebook Post Targets Ted Cruz Campaign

In an angry Facebook post, Sarah Palin is accusing Ted Cruz and his campaign of "dirty tricks."

Specifically she targeted one of Cruz's campaign chairmen, U.S. Rep. Steve King. She accused him of spreading the rumor that Ben Carson was suspending his campaign.

Palin's comments come after Trump came in second to Cruz in the Iowa caucuses.
