Things may be looking up for Senator Ted Cruz’ Presidential Campaign after his big win in Wisconsin this week–but fellow Texas Senator John Cornyn isn’t ready yet to line up behind the Cruz Campaign.
“I just don’t think it’s appropriate for a United States Senator to be picking the Nominee” Cornyn said when asked if he’s ready yet to make an endorsement.
Either way, the Senate’s Number Two Republican said he’ll be ready to line up behind the Party’s eventual Presidential Nominee. Cornyn also downplays talk someone outside of the race–such as House Speaker Paul Ryan–might sweep in to the Nomination at the GOP Convention in Cleveland.
“Frankly, I don’t have any particular concerns about letting the delegates at the National Convention make that choice” Cornyn said, when asked about a scenario that would find both Cruz and Donald Trump arriving at the Convention without enough delegates to win the Nomination outright.
“My expectation would be the current candidates that remain in the Presidential Race will be the pool from which the next Republican Presidential Nominee is chosen” Cornyn added.
