US election: Ted Cruz accidentally hits his wife

Seconds after announcing the end of his candidacy for the 2016 presidential election, Ted Cruz accidentally struck his wife Heidi not once but twice.

He did so while leaning in to hug his father, Rafael, on stage in Indianapolis, after the Indiana primary. But there did not appear to be any hard feelings as Heidi Cruz joined in the hug soon after.
