ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Speaking at a town hall in Iowa, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz says the GOP is not interested in taking away contraception from women who want it. He called out Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton for accusing Republicans of being the 'condom police.' "You are Hillary Clinton and you are trying to see what to run on. You can't run on the economy because we have the lowest number of Americans working since 77. You can run on Obama care because many people lost their jobs, premiers skyrocketed. You certainly can't run on foreign policy. Because every country you touched as secretary of state is a disaster. So what do you do? Ah ha the condom police!" said Cruz. "I am going to make up a completely made up threat and try to scare a bunch of folks that are not paying enough attention into thinking that someone is going to steal their birth control. What nonsense. How do we win? We speak the truth and we do it with a smile and it drives the Democrats crazy."
