Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said Monday the Drudge Report has turned into a mouthpiece for Donald Trump's presidential campaign.

Cruz called into the San Diego-based "Mike Slater Show" and said the website has changed in recent months as the Republican race for president heats up.

"Drudge Report over the years has done a good job highlighting the excesses of the left and the excesses of liberalism, and about the past month the Drudge Report has basically become the attack site for the Donald Trump campaign," Cruz said.

"And so every day they have the latest Trump attack, they're directed at me. By all appearances, Roger Stone now decides what's on Drudge. And most days, they have a six-month-old article that is some attack on me and it's whatever the Trump campaign is pushing that day will be the banner headline on Drudge."

Cruz added that the website "no longer covers news."

"There was no red siren on Drudge when we won all 34 delegates in Colorado," he said. "That wasn't news."

The Cruz campaign is steaming toward this summer's GOP convention and is trying to pick up delegate votes. Cruz trails Trump in the delegate total 743-545. If Trump falls short of 1,237 votes before the convention, Cruz or even someone else could pull off a victory and become the party's nominee.
