Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has endorsed Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz in an effort block Donald Trump in next week’s primary.
Walker on Tuesday called Cruz “a principled constitutional conservative who can win.”
“After all these years of the Obama-Clinton failures, it’s time we elect a strong new leader, and I’ve chosen to endorse Ted Cruz,” he said.
“Ted Cruz is the best positioned by far to both win the nomination of the Republican Party and to then go on and defeat Hillary Clinton in the fall of this year. That’s the key.”
The Wisconsin governor, himself a former presidential candidate, announced his support on “Midday with Charlie Sykes,” a popular conservative radio show in the state. Sykes endorsed Cruz earlier this month.
