The Trump campaign has finally responded to the debate offer, telling ABC News, that if Cruz is the last man standing and it comes down to a two-person race, then Trump will be happy to debate him.
After Donald Trump decided to cut and run from the Iowa debate moderated Megyn Kelly Ted Cruz, challenged Trump to a debate between just the two of them:
This race is a dead heat between Donald and me, we are effectively tied in the state of Iowa. If he is unwilling to stand on the debate stage with the other candidates, I would like to invite Donald right now to engage in a one-on-one debate with me, anytime between now and the Iowa Caucuses.
Cruz suggested potential moderators from conservative talk radio, including Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh. Cruz continued to mock the Donald saying, that If moderators are "too scary'" for Trump then he and Trump could do a 90 minute "Lincoln-Douglas, mano-a-mano" debate where they could both lay out their vision for the country. Cruz also launched a website called DuckingDonald.com that asks supporters to check "yes" to a debate between he and Trump.
