MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) – Donald Trump says he’s not getting enough credit for his 2nd place win in Iowa Monday.
He tweets: “The media has not covered my long-shot great finish in Iowa fairly. Brought in record voters and got second highest vote total in history!”
It was the third tweet from Trump since an overnight silence from the usually prodigious user of Twitter in the wee hours.
A few minutes earlier, Trump tweeted: “Because I was told I could not do well in Iowa, I spent very little there – a fraction of Cruz & Rubio. Came in a strong second. Great honor.”
Ted Cruz’s team is already beginning to make a play for Ben Carson’s supporters.
Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler asked, “Where is Ben Carson?” as various campaigns filed into a Manchester airport shortly after 5 a.m.
Ben Carson is taking a break from the campaign trail after his fourth-place finish in the Iowa caucuses.
Spokesman Larry Ross says the retired neurosurgeon is at home Tuesday in Florida before heading to Washington, D.C., on Wednesday. He’ll stay there through the National Prayer Breakfast scheduled for Thursday, then head to New Hampshire.
