Politico reports that Ted Cruz‘s presidential campaign reached out to other Republican campaigns on Wednesday, asking them to help pressure Fox News to change the entry standards for the first presidential debate.

“I’m sure you are aware, the standards set by Fox News for the first GOP Presidential debate are unclear and, it would appear, undefined,” Cruz staffer Chris Wilson wrote in the memo.
