Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, endorsed Dave McCormick for the 2022 Senate election in Pennsylvania on Friday during an appearance on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle."

"I've known Dave for a lot of years, and I think he is an exceptionally strong candidate," Cruz said. "We've got to win Pennsylvania to take the Senate."

"You look at Dave's story, he's born in Pittsburgh, grew up on a Christmas tree farm in Western Pennsylvania," Cruz added. "He was a high school wrestler, he was a high school football player, he got appointed to West Point, he was the captain of the wrestling team at West Point

"This guy's a bada**."

The Pennsylvania Senate candidate followed the announcement with thanks and recognition on Twitter of Cruz's contributions to the Senate as a conservative leader:

"BREAKING: I'm thrilled to announce @TedCruz's endorsement of my campaign. As we fight to restore our values, it's an honor to have the support of great Conservative leaders like Ted."

McCormick served as a CEO of Bridgewater Associates since 2017, according to Reuters. He is also former official in the Treasury Department under President George W. Bush, according to CNN.

The former Bush official decided to join the race after Trump-endorsed candidate Sean Parnell dropped out amid a public custody fight with his estranged wife. He has since received the endorsement of Parnell, The Washington Free Beacon reported.

McCormick is in a stacked field for the Republican primary, including conservative commentator Kathy Barnette, former Ambassador Carla Sands, and TV star Dr. Mehmet Oz, according to The New York Times.
