Desperate To Stop Trump, Bush Backs Ted Cruz For President

Jeb Bush has endorsed Ted Cruz in an effort to stop Donald Trump from winning the Republican Presidential nomination.

According to The Hill:

“Jeb Bush early Wednesday endorsed Ted Cruz‘s Republican presidential bid, calling the Texas senator a “consistent, principled conservative.”

Bush, who ended his own campaign last month, said Cruz has “has demonstrated the ability to appeal to voters and win primary contests.”

“Washington is broken, and the only way Republicans can hope to win back the White House and put our nation on a better path is to support a nominee who can articulate how conservative policies will help people rise up and reach their full potential,” the former Florida governor said.

Bush called on Republicans to “overcome the divisiveness and vulgarity Donald Trump has brought to the political arena” or risk losing the White House.”
