Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is poised to endorse Senator Ted Cruz on Wednesday, giving Cruz his highest-ranking political endorsement thus far in the presidential race.
According to CNN:
“Abbott will formally back Cruz at an event Wednesday at 1 p.m. in Houston, campaign officials said, just six days before what is expected to be a competitive race with Donald Trump in Texas. Although not unexpected, the nod from Abbott is the clearest sign yet that the Texas Republican establishment is backing their freshman senator in his presidential ambitions.”
Cruz already has an 8 point lead over Trump in Texas.
