New York Times:

Ted Cruz, who spent weeks focused on defeating Marco Rubio, said in an interview after the fiery Republican presidential debate on Thursday that Mr. Rubio would be a better nominee than Donald J. Trump…

Mr. Rubio, Mr. Cruz said in a post-debate interview with Jake Tapper on CNN, “did something tonight that he’s never done, which is he actually for the first time took on Donald Trump and I’m glad he did.”

He continued: “Marco is not my enemy. Marco and I are friends. Marco and I would both make a much better candidate and a much better president than would Donald. I like Donald personally. I mean, he’s a charming guy, though he can turn on you in an instant.”
