On Wednesday, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush announced he will endorse presidential candidate Ted Cruz in the coming election.

In an excerpt taken from Bush’s announcement, Jeb said:

Today, I am endorsing Ted Cruz for President, Ted is a consistent, principled conservative who has demonstrated the ability to appeal to voters and win primary contests. Washington is broken, and the only way Republicans can hope to win back the White House and put our nation on a better path is to support a nominee who can articulate how conservative policies will help people rise up and reach their full potential.

“I'm truly honored to earn Governor Jeb Bush's support, Governor Bush was an extraordinary governor of Florida, and his record of job creation and education innovation left a lasting legacy for millions of Floridians," Sen. Cruz said in response to the endorsement.
