ROUGH CUT - NATURAL (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY : Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz took aim at rival Donald Trump saying, "It's easy to talk about making America great again....but the real question is do you understand the principals and values that made America great in the first place," in an address to the Colorado GOP convention. Cruz, who appeared poised to win a majority of the state's 37 delegates, said, "Donald Trump has been supporting liberal Democratic politicians for 40 years, I have no experience with that." The New York billionaire lost the Wisconsin Republican primary on Tuesday to Cruz and is seeking to rebound in New York on April 19. He won the backing on Thursday of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who was irked by Cruz's values comments. "It's New York City. We're family. I can make fun of New York but you can't," Giuliani, who led the city through the trauma of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, told the New York Post. Trump canceled a Friday trip to California to focus on New York. He turned on Cruz Wednesday night during his first rally in the state since the double-digit loss in Wisconsin. "I've got this guy standing over there, looking at me, talking about New York values with scorn in his face, with hated, with hatred of New York," Trump said, drawing a chorus of boos. Cruz credited his Feb. 1 Iowa caucuses victory in part to his attacks on Trump's "New York values." He told ABC on Thursday the phrase referred to the state's liberal Democrats.
