Former Republican candidate Jeb Bush endorsed Ted Cruz for President on Wednesday.
In a Facebook post announcing his decision, Bush detailed his reasons for backing the Texas senator, calling him “a consistent, principled conservative who has demonstrated the ability to appeal to voters and win primary contests.”
Bush also drew attention to what he considers the Republican party’s need to back a nominee other than the current frontrunner, writing, “For the sake of our party and country, we must overcome the divisiveness and vulgarity Donald Trump has brought into the political arena or we will certainly lose our chance to defeat the Democratic nominee, most likely Hillary Clinton, this fall.”
The news comes the morning after Cruz saw a big win in the Utah caucus, while Trump won in Arizona.
