Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who abandoned last month his bid for the White House, announced Wednesday that he’s endorsing Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.
“As I said from the moment I launched my presidential campaign, the stakes in 2016 couldn’t be higher,” Bush wrote in a Facebook posting.
Bush, the son of one former president and the brother of another, was an early favorite to win the nomination after announcing his candidacy last summer. However, he struggled to break through in the early Republican contests and quit the race after last month’s South Carolina primary.
In a statement to Fox News, Bush said Cruz was “a consistent, principled conservative who has demonstrated the ability to appeal to voters and win primary contests.”
Bush also warned Republicans against nominating Donald Trump, who picked up 58 more delegates Tuesday with a convincing win in Arizona’s winner-take-all primary.
