WASHINGTON (AP) - Ted Cruz is drawing sharp contrasts between himself and Republican front-runner Donald Trump.

He said he and Trump differ on Israel, the Iranian nuclear deal and the possibility of compromising over a choice for the Supreme Court.

He also asked if parents would be willing to vote for a candidate whose words "you wouldn't want your children to repeat."

Cruz captured two states during the string of contests known as Super Tuesday: Oklahoma and his home state of Texas. Trump won six.

Neither John Kasich nor Mario Rubio has won a state and Cruz strongly suggested they should drop out so the anti-Trump factions could coalesce around him.
