Just when you thought the primary election between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz could not get more personal, the Republican presidential front-runner upped the ante.

Trump fired the latest salvo in the battle over the wives late Wednesday when he “re-tweeted” a photo comparing the looks of his wife and former model Melania to his rival’s wife Heidi Cruz along with the caption: “No need to “spill the beans” … the images are worth a thousand words.”

An angry Trump responded to the ad by threatening to “spill the beans” on Heidi Cruz, prompting the Texas senator to call Trump a “coward” and “classless.”

Cruz responded less than an hour after Trump re-tweeted the insulting photo comparing the candidate’s wives:
