CONTOOCOOK, N.H. - While campaigning in New Hampshire, Sen. Ted Cruz joked that he knows who is behind the whole deflategate scandal - and it's not Tom Brady. 

"Tom Brady was framed. I'm not willing to pander on much, but on that - Tom Brady was framed," Cruz said, while the crowd cheered behind him.  

Cruz, GOP candidate for president, spent Saturday talking to voters in New Hampshire. He didn't miss an opportunity to joke about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, in regards to deflategate. 

"And I have it on good authority that Hillary Clinton did it - why else do you think she deleted her emails?" he said, while the crowd laughed and cheered behind him. 

The candidates will continue stumping in New Hampshire, and appealing to New England sports fans, until the primary election Feb. 9.
