Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as his choice to become the next president of the United States Thursday afternoon.
Lee appeared at a campaign rally with Cruz in Cora Gables, Florida. Lee said that Cruz is “unstoppable,” hinted that other senators will soon endorse him, and called on Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) to drop out of the presidential race.

The Utah Senator is well-regarded as one of the brightest voices for constitutional conservatism in the Senate. He and Cruz have maintained a strong friendship since arriving on Capitol Hill. The two have fought together for a pro-Liberty, pro-Constitution agenda in Washington.
Sen. Lee had previously been on the campaign trail with both Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).
Lee will officially endorse Cruz at an event on Thursday afternoon in Florida, according to reports.
