Jeb Bush endorsed Ted Cruz, “becoming the most prominent member of the Republican establishment to support the Texas senator as he tries to slow Donald Trump’s efforts to capture the presidential nomination,” the New York Times reports.
“The endorsement came as aides to Mr. Cruz, who is unliked by much of the Republican leadership and many of his Senate colleagues, have been courting high-profile supporters to bolster his candidacy. The Cruz campaign has also sought support from Sen. Marco Rubio, who dropped out of the race after losing his home state to Mr. Trump on March 15.”
Mike Allen: “The news will surely irk Rubio, who could have benefited greatly from Bush’s embrace. But a Republican source said: ‘Jeb came to believe Marco was not up to the job of being President. It was never really under serious discussion.'”Save to Favorites
