Ted Cruz’s wife had sharp words for Donald Trump after he warned he'd ‘‘spill the beans’’ on her in a vague tweet.

The tweet came after an anti-Trump group that’s not controlled by Cruz ran an ad in Utah featuring a provocative picture of Trump’s wife, Melania, from a photo shoot that ran in British GQ magazine more than a decade ago. She was then a model.

Heidi Cruz opened a campaign office for her husband in suburban Milwaukee on Wednesday. She said: ‘‘the things that Donald Trump says are not based in reality.’’

Trump misidentified Cruz as the source of the ad.
