WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) - Two months after famously refusing to endorse Donald Trump for president at the Republican National Convention, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) announced Friday that he is supporting the Republican nominee.
"After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump," Cruz wrote in a lengthy Facebook post laying out his reasoning.
Cruz listed several reasons he believes Trump is preferable to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, including national security and the direction of the Supreme Court.
"Our country is in crisis," he said. "Hillary Clinton is manifestly unfit to be president, and her policies would harm millions of Americans. And Donald Trump is the only thing standing in her way."
