There will be no Texas two-step on Ted Cruz’s much-belated decision to endorse Donald Trump. The Texas senator told a local TV station in Muleshoe, Texas, on Monday that despite lewd video showing Trump joking of unwanted sexual advances on women he would still back Trump over Hillary Clinton.
“I am supporting the Republican nominee because I think Hillary Clinton is an absolute disaster. Now my differences with Donald, I have articulated at great length during the campaign. And I tried all my might,” Cruz told Maggan Rennels of Channel 6. “It was an amazing journey.”
Rennels followed up by asking Cruz about whether he’d run for president again. Cruz didn’t rule it out: “We’ll see what the future holds.” He’s also up for reelection in 2018.
