Most of the GOP field met Thursday night in Des Moines, Iowa for the final debate before the Iowa Caucuses next week. We've teamed up with PolitiFact to put the candidates statements to the test.
So, how truthful were some of the major claims?
Ted Cruz on insulting Donald Trump
While "The Donald" is famous for cutting down his fellow candidates, Ted Cruz told the crowd he chooses to the high road when trading jabs.
"Let me be clear," Cruz said, "If Donald engages in insults or anybody else, I don't intend to reciprocate. I have not insulted Donald personally, and I don't intend to."
PolitiFact rating: Mostly False
Cruz is mostly false according to our PolitiFact analysts. He and Trump shared a warm relationship not too long ago, and what qualifies as an insult is subjective.
But Cruz has certainly mocked Trump more recently. In fact, at the beginning of the debate, he made light of Trumps' habit of insulting his fellow candidates. Cruz called them all stupid, fat, and ugly. He even called himself a maniac.
