The video of Mr Rubio had fake subtitles

Republican presidential claimant Ted Cruz has asked his debate orator to renounce after a staffer promoted a doctored video of opposition Marco Rubio.

Staffer Rick Tyler tweeted a story and subtitled video that showed Mr Rubio referring to a Bible as a “good book” with “not many answers in it”.

Mr Rubio’s debate pronounced he indeed said: “All a answers are in there.”

The call comes after a Cruz debate has been regularly indicted of “lies” and “dirty tricks” by opposition campaigns.

“Our debate should not have sent it,” Mr Cruz told reporters on Monday. “We are not a debate that is going to doubt a faith of another claimant for president.”

Mr Tyler, a Cruz campaign’s communication director, apologised to a Rubio debate in a post to Facebook.

“I’ve deleted a post since we would not intentionally post a fake story,” Mr Tyler said. “But a fact stays that we did post it when we should have checked a correctness first. we bewail a mistake.”

Other Republican possibilities Ben Carson and Donald Trump have formerly criticised a Cruz debate after his staffers were indicted of secretly revelation electorate that Mr Carson had forsaken out of a competition only hours before a Iowa caucuses.

“Our debate should not have sent it,” Mr Cruz pronounced of a video

Mr Cruz apologised to a Carson campaign, though a emanate has lingered in a race.

Mr Trump has also taken emanate with disastrous adverts sponsored by a Cruz campaign. Mr Trump has threatened to sue Mr Cruz for defamation.

While Mr Trump is now heading a Republican margin after large wins in New Hampshire and South Carolina, Mr Cruz and Mr Rubio are in a parsimonious competition for second place.
