Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Endorses Cruz

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Endorses Cruz

Wednesday, 24 February 2016 07:27 AM

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is endorsing Sen. Ted Cruz for president in his home state.

Abbott becomes the senator's highest profile endorsement to date. Abbott will formally back Cruz at an event Wednesday at 1 p.m. later today, CNN reports. The announcement comes just six days before Texans head to the polls in the Republican primary.

After 8 years of relentless attacks on our values from this White House, it's our duty as Texas conservatives to support a leader we can trust to restore our values and move this country forward," Abbott  said in a video releaed Wednesday. "That's why I'm supporting Ted Cruz for president."

Cruz has wooed the governor's endorsement for months, praising his efforts on immigration -- the key issue for Abbott, who strongly favors blocking illegal immigration in the border state.
