When he served in the U.S. House of Representatives and then later in the U.S. Senate, Phil Gramm was considered one of the conservative lions of Congress.

Over the weekend, the former Texas senator became the newest member of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz's presidential campaign. Along with the announcement that he was joining the Cruz Crew, Gramm offered the following endorsement.

"Ted Cruz is a fearless leader and fighter for conservatives all over this country. He has consistently and unwaveringly fought to protect our God-given liberties his entire life. I believe he is the leader that America needs now, at a time when our freedoms are endangered. I intend to do everything in my power to help Ted Cruz broaden his political base, win the nomination, and be elected President of the United States."

Prior to serving in Congress, Gramm was an economics professor at Texas A&M University. He will serve the Cruz campaign as a senior adviser and as a legislative liaison at Capitol Hill.

"Phil has been a powerful voice for conservative values his entire career and Americans know and respect his principled leadership on their behalf during his time in Congress," Cruz said. "When Bill Clinton tried to push HillaryCare through Congress, Phil stood firm and unequivocally with the American people—his leadership showed the nation that when leaders stay true to their values and fulfill their promises, the trust they earn from the voters can influence public opinion and change the course of our country for the better. I am honored to have his support for this campaign."
