The republican candidate Donald Trump accused his rival Ted Cruz of fraud, calling for either new elections or nullification of the results.

According to Trump, Ted Cruz cheated in the last GOP’s Iowa caucuses telling voters rival Ben Carson planned to suspend his campaign, which was not true. Carson just decided to go home for a break after the caucuses.

“What Senator Cruz did to Ben Carson was a disgrace and an insult to Dr. Carson and the process”, Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said to the newspaper Bloomberg Politics.

In fact, differently from what was expected Cruz won the Iowa race on Monday while Trump, projected to win, placed second ending up 3 percentage points behind the winner.

Following the results, on Wednesday 3 February Trump started posting a hail of tweets accusing his contender. “Ted Cruz didn’t win Iowa, he stole it. That is why all of the polls were so wrong and why he got far more votes than anticipated. Bad!”, he tweeted.

Also Carson joined Trump alleging that Cruz used unfair tactics to win in Iowa.

Mr Cruz and his camp are not taking the accusations too seriously.

“Reality just hit the reality star – he lost Iowa and now nobody is talking about him, so he’s popping off on Twitter,” Cruz’s spokesman Rick Tyler emailed to Politico.

Then, he added on CNN: “There was no dirty trick”.

Cruz also said he wouldn’t apologize “for using every tool we can to encourage Iowa voters to come out and vote,” according to USA Today.

Yet there is no evidence that the Cruz campaign’s statement about Carson affected the race results.

According to Edward Foley, an election law professor at Ohio State University, interviewed by Bloomberg Politics it must be proved that Cruz’s comments affected directly the outcome of the caucus and that Cruz intentionally engaged in voting violation.
