From the February 10 edition of MSNBC's MTP Daily:
CHUCK TODD (HOST): One group of folks that have been very important to Mr. Trump have been some of the big leaders in talk radio, including Rush Limbaugh. But I want to share with you something today that Rush Limbaugh said about Ted Cruz and ask you to react. He said, “if conservatism is your bag, if conservatism is the dominating factor in how you vote, there is no other choice for you in this campaign than Ted Cruz, because” -- and he's referring to a caller -- “you are exactly right, this is the closest in our lifetimes we have been to Ronald Reagan.” That's almost an endorsement from Mr. Limbaugh of Mr. Cruz. I take it, you wouldn't be very happy about that?
SAM CLOVIS: Well, I think Rush has a job to do and that's exactly what he's doing. If you noticed, earlier in the campaign, Rush's words were used in Ted Cruz advertising in Iowa, in particular. I think that if you look at this, this is, I think, Rush Limbaugh's interpretation of conservatism. I would put my conservative credentials up against Rush's any day of the week and against Ted Cruz's any day of the week or Steve King's or anybody else's.
