    Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) speaks to members of the media at Morningstar Fellowship Church February 11, 2016 in Fort Mill, South Carolina.

    Sen. Ted Cruz's campaign has pulled an attack ad against Marco Rubio after it was revealed that it featured a former softcore porn actress, NBC News reported.

    Cruz's campaign said in a statement Thursday that it was swapping the commercial with a new one after learning about actress Amy Lindsay's background. 

    "The actress responded to an open casting call," the campaign said. "She passed her audition and got the job. Unfortunately, she was not vetted by the casting company."

    Lindsay has said she's a supporter of Cruz's conservative Christian values.
