USA: Protesters crash Cruz’s hometown rally in Houston

A group of protesters disrupted Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz during a campaign rally in his hometown of Houston, Texas, Monday. The Texas senator was addressing a crowd of around a thousand of his supporters at Houston Baptist University when demonstrators interrupted the rally chanting, “Cruz, bad for Texas, bad for the country”, to which he laughed, “very nice”, adding, “you have a right to speak but you don’t have the right to interrupt others.” Addressing his supporters ahead of Tuesday’s Republican primaries, Cruz said “we can beat Donald Trump”. “If you don’t want Donald Trump to be the nominee, then regardless of who you were thinking of supporting, I ask that you stand with us so that we can beat Donald Trump,” he concluded.
