    Ted Cruz talks on March 22, 2016, in Washington, D.C. The Republican presidential candidate began campaigning in New York on March 23.

    Ted Cruz will need to read up on his "New York values" now that he's in Manhattan.

    Cruz, who trails behind Donald Trump in polls and delegate numbers, said he intends to challenge Trump in his home state's primary.

    "God bless the great state of New York!" Cruz said upon taking the microphone in front of a tightly-packed crowd of 150 Republicans at the Women's National Republican Club in midtown Manhattan.

    At his first official campaign event in the state since announcing his candidacy one year ago, Cruz accused Trump of years of financially backing "liberal Democratic policies" in the state.
