“I don’t know Mr. King,” Cruz said Tuesday on CNN. “I’ve never met him. To be honest, I don’t think I had ever heard of him until he started getting on television attacking me.”

On Wednesday, CNN host Wolf Blitzer asked King to respond to Cruz.

“Maybe if he had listened to me over the years, he’d be a little smarter,” King said, according to Mediaite. “I was, I think, the third-highest Republican on national television shows last year. I’m on your show all the time.”

Take that Ted Cruz, Peter King is on TV all the time.
