Former Attorney General of Virginia Ken Cuccinelli told ABC's Terry Moran that Ted Cruz's wife, Heidi faced physical threats of violence before she was escorted out of Quicken Loans Arena Wednesday night.

“People behind her were getting very ugly, and physically approaching her and Raphael, and it was not a pretty situation," Cuccinelli said.  "And the decision was instantly made to not talk to media and get immediately out of the arena. Walked Right down here down the aisle.  And people from my own delegation were physically approaching her while yelling at her. So, I physically moved media out of her way, and got in the way of my own delegation so she could clear by and get out of the arena."
