Sen Ted Cruz Endorses Trump For President

Former President Donald Trump’s 25th endorsement in the Senate came from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). Cruz announced his endorsement on Tuesday night a day after Trump secured a win in the Iowa caucuses.

While he said last year that he would not be making any endorsement due to his friendship with both Trump and his rival, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Cruz said on Tuesday that Trump’s Monday win is decisive and there is no path forward for any other Republican presidential

“Congratulations to President Trump on that dominating victory, and at this point, I believe this race is over. So I am proud to endorse Donald Trump for president of the United States. I look forward to supporting him enthusiastically because I think it’s time for the Republican Party to unite, for us to come together,” he stated.

“We’ve got to beat Joe Biden. We’ve got to beat this disastrous cultural Marxist agenda in the White House. We’ve got to retake the United States Senate. We’ve got to hold the House. We’ve got to come together and win, and with the results last night, the people have spoken. It’s time to move onward to victory in November,” he said further.

According to Cruz, other candidates don’t stand a chance against Trump going forward. He stated, “New Hampshire may be closely contested, we’ll see what happens. I think after New Hampshire, it will go to South Carolina, I believe in South Carolina, you’re gonna see Trump win a dominating victory in South Carolina. And after that, you’ve got Super Tuesday. I don’t see a path for any candidate after that. And I’m a big believer, we need to let the process play out. It did and the results last night — 51%, 98 counties — that’s compelling. And and at this point, I think the contrast needs to be on substance and policy and records.”

With Cruz’s endorsement, Trump now has the majority of the Senate GOP backing his presidential bid. The GOP front runner and Cruz both tried to win the Republican party’s presidential ticket for 2016. While Trump could not beat Cruz in the Iowa caucuses back then, he did manage to secure the party’s nomination. Cruz would later endorse the former president’s bid but he did not do that until it was less than two months away from the election.

The two have since supported each other’s political bids, with Cruz backing Trump’s reelection bid in 2020 and Trump backing Cruz’s senatorial aspirations.
