Texas Governor Endorses Ted Cruz for President

Texas Governor Greg Abbott endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in his bid for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination in a video on Wednesday morning.

“Conservative values are at his core,” Abbott said in describing his former employee. He added that Cruz is a “constitutionalist whose judgment I trust to appoint the right judges to the United States Supreme Court.”

Senator Cruz was the Texas Solicitor General during the time that Abbott served Texas as Attorney General. During that time, Cruz represented the State of Texas in several cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Abbott said that Cruz is a conservative we can trust to support our values. “That’s why I am supporting Ted Cruz for president,” the Texas governor stated in his video endorsement.

“Unlike far too many in Washington, the Ted Cruz we’ve seen in the Senate is the same Ted Cruz we elected,” Abbott continued. “And, he is the same Ted Cruz I served with when I was the Attorney General and Ted was our Solicitor General.”

    Cool, hopefully Cruz can turn things around! I will definitely be sending Cruz another contribution! May the Lord return us as a nation back to Him… We need the Lord, and we need to protect our First Amendment… May The Father in Heaven bless Ted Cruz and his efforts…

    These endorsements are not what they are cracked up to be. That may be the only state Cruz wins in Tuesday. If he even wins.

    Governor endorsement doesn’t mean a lot. Just look at SC.

        He may win Texas, but that will be all. Personally, I wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t win his home state.
