Idaho Rep. Raul Labrador, who leads the House Freedom Caucus, is backing Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for president, National Review reports. 

Labrador originally supported Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, serving as his Western States chairman. But Paul ended his campaign on February 3 after a poor showing in the Iowa caucuses and has been courted by other candidates since, National Review notes.

Labrador is the third member of the conservative Freedom Caucus to endorse Cruz. Kansas Rep. Tim Huelskamp also endorsed Cruz on Tuesday, and North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows endorsed Cruz in January.
