Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was previously a prominent adversary of Donald Trump. Both individuals competed against each other in the 2016 presidential primary; however, the senator couldn’t compete with the real estate mogul’s success. Currently, Cruz has given his endorsement to the former president in the latest electoral contest.
On January 16, Cruz made an appearance on the “Hannity” show on Fox News, engaging in a conversation with host Sean Hannity. During the interview, the conservative senator expressed his pride in endorsing Trump for the presidency. He conveyed his eagerness to wholeheartedly support the former president in the upcoming endeavors.
In the 2016 Iowa Caucuses, Cruz emerged victorious over Trump. However, in the recent caucuses, the former president achieved a historic win with the largest margin of victory ever recorded. Describing Trump’s triumph as commanding, he asserted that these results establish him as the sole viable Republican nominee for the presidency at present. Cruz extended his congratulations to the former POTUS and expressed his belief that, at this stage, the race is concluded.
Trump secured a resounding victory in the Iowa caucuses, boasting a remarkable 31-point margin. As he heads into New Hampshire, his momentum is stronger than ever, positioning him as the frontrunner in that state as well. The remaining contenders in the race are Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley. DeSantis, significantly trailing in New Hampshire, has opted to forego campaigning there and is heading directly to South Carolina, where Trump maintains a lead.
Cruz is not the sole endorser of Trump; the party is uniting behind him. Vivek Ramaswamy withdrew from the race, pledging his endorsement to Trump. Senator Marco Rubio and North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum have also expressed their support for the former president. Trump has garnered 23 endorsements from Republican senators, while neither Haley nor DeSantis has received any endorsements from the Senate.
