Two months after defiantly walking off of the convention floor in Cleveland with the sound of boos following him off the stage Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz says he will vote for the Republican nominee Donald J. Trump.
The news was released via a 741-word Facebook post mid-Friday afternoon, saying that he wants "keep his word" to vote for the Republican nominee.
He went on to say he found Hillary Clinton "wholly unacceptable" and if "you don't want to see a Hillary Clinton presidency, I encourage you to vote for him."
The endorsement marks a full reversal for the Texas senator but the evidence an endorsement was possible emerged this week when news leaked he met with Trump's vice presidential nominee Mike Pence and the Trump campaign communicated they'd support the Internet-related proposal in government funding talks in the Senate that Cruz is strongly supporting.
After a congenial beginning the two men quickly became heated adversaries, with Trump constantly referring him as "Lyin' Ted" while Cruz fired back at him after the final primary in Indiana as "utterly amoral," and "a narcissist at a level I don't think this country's ever seen."
In a statement following the endorsement, Trump said that he was "greatly honored by the endorsement of Senator Cruz.
"We have fought the battle and he was a tough and brilliant opponent.
"I look forward to working with him for many years to come in order to make America great again."
