‘DONALD, REAL MEN DON’T ATTACK WOMEN’: Trump, Cruz Go Personal With the Attacks by Dragging Their Wives into it

Screen Shot 2016-03-24 at 9.12.32 AMThings just got worse between Donald and Ted. Do you ever think they will make peace with each other?

A feud between Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz that has drawn in their spouses has escalated over a racy advertisement featuring Trump’s wife, a former model, that prompted the front-runner to target Heidi Cruz.

Earlier this week, an anti-Trump Super PAC published the ad featuring Trump’s wife Melania lounging nude, and Trump threatened to “spill the beans” on Cruz’s wife.

“Donald, real men don’t attack women. Your wife is lovely, and Heidi is the love of my life,” Cruz said in a post on Twitter early on Thursday.

His tweet followed one moments earlier by Trump, the Republican front-runner in the race, in which he retweeted an image featuring a less-than-flattering picture of Heidi Cruz juxtaposed to a glamorous photo of Melania.

The war of words comes on the heels of the candidates’ split win earlier this week. Trump won Arizona and Cruz took Utah in the latest state primary contests to represent the party in the Nov. 8 presidential election.

Both candidates are trying to garner enough delegates to win the Republican party nomination ahead of the nominating convention this summer. After Tuesday’s contests, Trump had 738 of the 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination, according to The New York Times. Cruz had 463.

Ohio Governor John Kasich is also in the running, but so far has only won his home state.

Cruz immediately hit back, tweeting: 'Donald, real men don't attack women. Your wife is lovely, and Heidi is the love of my life'

The super PAC Make America Awesome, which describes itself as an independent group focused on 'unconventional and cost-effective tactics' created this ad attacking Donald Trump through his wife Melania (pictured, in a GQ photo shoot in 2000)

Furious: Trump hit out at Ted Cruz for the advert, saying he would 'spill the beans' on his wife Heidi Cruz. It was unclear exactly what he meant although she has a history of depression

Careful Donald: Cruz quickly responded, saying if he tried to attack Heidi, he would be 'more of a coward than I thought'. He also called it 'classless'
