Friday afternoon, the Cruz for President campaign announced the endorsement of U.S. Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.).
"I remain deeply committed to the election of a president who is committed to preserving the Constitution, the conservative cause and this republic for future generations," he said. "Two weeks ago, I urged Senators Cruz and Rubio to unite and present our party with a combined ticket that would bring our conservative cause together in the primary election, and our nation together in the general election."
That merger didn't happen, and may never happen. Franks, however, said the results of the past two weeks made it clear that Cruz was the "most reliable conservative with the best chance to win."
"He can win our party's nomination, and even more importantly, can beat Hillary Clinton in November," he said. "Therefore I have cast my ballot for Ted and am now honored to endorse his campaign, encouraging all who believe in strong families, free markets and the Constitution, to similarly rally to this effort and vote for Ted as the next president of the United States."
