NDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is endorsing Ted Cruz in the state’s critical Republican primary next week.
Pence announced his support for the Texas senator this afternoon in a radio interview (on The Garrison Show on WIBC-FM.) He said, “I will be voting for Ted Cruz.” Pence called Cruz “a principled conservative” who has “shown the courage of his convictions.”
But Pence also had kind words for Cruz’s rival Donald Trump. He says Trump “has given voice to the frustration of millions of working Americans” and he is “grateful for his voice in the national debate.”
Cruz is desperately seeking momentum in his fight to block Trump from claiming the delegate majority before the GOP’s national convention in July. A Trump win in Indiana on Tuesday would all but ensure he becomes the presumptive nominee.
