Texas Sen. Ted Cruz told supporters at a New York City fundraiser Wednesday he believes his GOP presidential rivals Donald Trump and Ben Carson will fall, and that he will scoop up their supporters.

The Times obtained audio of Cruz speaking to about 70 people, and posted part of it on Thursday.  

"I think both of them, their campaigns have a natural arc," Cruz says. "And with both of them I think gravity is pulling them down…. Carson is further in that descent."

He continued:

"You look at Paris, you look at San Bernardino, it’s given a seriousness to this race, that people are looking for: Who is prepared to be a commander in chief? Who understands the threats we face? Who am I comfortable having their finger on the button?

"Now that’s a question of strength, but it’s also a question of judgment. And I think that is a question that is a challenging question for both of them. So my approach, much to the frustration of the media has been to bear hug both of them, and smother them with love.

"People run as who they are. I believe gravity will bring both of those campaigns down, I think the lion’s share of their supporters come to us."
