1. Called Out the Ted Cruz Campaign

Ben Carson claimed the Ted Cruz campaign cost him votes in Iowa by telling people that he was suspending his campaign. Carson said several people told him he was going to do extraordinarily well in the Iowa.

At first the Cruz campaign somewhat denied Carson's claim. Rick Tyler, Cruz campaign communications director, admitted the campaign had put out a tweet that claimed Carson was ending his campaign, but said they did so only because Carson had made comments about his travel schedule that made them believe he was dropping out of the race. Tyler went on to say that Carson, who had once lead in Iowa, dropping out of the race was big news and is why they put out the tweet. Later, the Cruz campaign apologized for sending out an email to the grassroots that promoted the idea that Carson was dropping out of the race, but did not correct the email later when it become clear that Carson was not dropping out of the race.
