New York Republicans Ignore Ted Cruz at GOP Gala

NEW YORK A stunningly distracted crowd of hundreds of Republicans almost entirely ignored Ted Cruz's speech at the New York City GOP gala on Thursday night, instead chattering at their dinner tables, standing and taking selfies. Several casually left the dinner altogether.

The crowd's stark disregard for Cruz's remarks followed months of controversy over Cruz's suggestion in January that Donald Trump has "New York values."

"I haven't built any buildings in NYC," Cruz started off his remarks, waiting for a brief moment for a potential audience laugh that never came. At Cruz's peak applause points, he received acknowledgement from likely no more than two dozen attendees at a time.

On television, viewers watching Cruz's remarks heard cringe-worthy audio from the Manhattan ballroom, punctuating what those in the room experienced. Cruz was not helped by problems with the audio output sent to the cameras, causing broadcast listeners to hear Cruz straining to speak over the din of dishes, silverware and table chatter with few cheers.
