Jeb Bush endorses Cruz for president

Jeb Bush says he’s endorsing Ted Cruz for president.

The former presidential hopeful tweets that “Ted is a consistent, principled conservative who has shown he can unite the party.”

He adds on his Facebook page that Republicans “must overcome the divisiveness and vulgarity Donald Trump has brought into the political arena” or risk losing to Hillary Clinton.

In response, Cruz praises the endorsement, saying it proves his candidacy has drawn broad support among Republicans.
