    Cruz Says He's the Only Republican Who Can Beat Donald Trump
    NBC News
    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, holds a rally Friday, Feb. 19, 2016, before the South Carolina Republican primary election.

    Sen. Ted Cruz said he’s the only Republican who can beat rival Donald Trump, despite placing a disappointing third place in South Carolina, NBC News reported.

    During his appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Cruz said Trump doesn’t attack any other candidate except him, “because his campaign views us as the only real threat to him.”

    Cruz finished just one point behind Marco Rubio in South Carolina, which Cruz called a tie for second.

    His home state of Texas is one of the states voting on March 1, also known as Super Tuesday.
