NEW YORK (AP) - U.S. Rep. Peter King says he will “take cyanide” if Ted Cruz wins the Republican presidential nomination.

The Republican congressman from New York made the comment Tuesday during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

King is the former chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.

He told host Joe Scarborough: “I hate Ted Cruz.”

Cruz’s campaign did not immediately respond to a comment request.

King previously said that any New Yorker who thinks of voting for Cruz “should have their head examined.”

King says he voted for John Kasich in the primary.

He has said many of his Long Island constituents support Donald Trump.
