Texas Sen. Ted Cruz could be left "in the rearview mirror of the Republican Party" if he doesn't get behind GOP nominee Donald Trump, warns Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.

During an interview on "The Laura Ingraham Show" on Monday, Patrick, who supported Cruz during the GOP presidential primaries, said it is past time to get off the sideline.

The remarks start about the 4:40-minute mark.

"You know, I stay loyal to my friends, and Ted's a friend, but obviously I'm disappointed," Patrick said.

"I’m hoping there's still time for him to come forward, or I think he and all the other people you named will be left in the rearview mirror of the Republican Party moving forward. So I'm hoping Ted comes forward. I'm visiting with him on that issue, of course."

Cruz came under fire from Republicans when he refused to endorse Trump during a primetime speech at the Republican convention in Cleveland.

But Patrick has been somewhat quiet about the issue,  The Texas Tribune reported. He's now been named Trump's Texas state chairman, the Tribune noted.
