Jeb Bush Endorses Ted Cruz for President [VIDEO]

Jeb Bush endorsed former rival Ted Cruz early Wednesday, dubbing the controversial Texas senator as β€œa principled conservative.” Bush, who suspended his own presidential campaign about one month ago, urged others not to consider real-estate mogul Donald Trump in the race. Bush told CNN that Cruz β€œhas demonstrated the ability to appeal to voters and win primary contests.” During the campaign, Bush called Trump a β€œbully” and β€œnot a conservative.” He repeated that sentiment Wednesday: β€œWe must move to overcome the divisiveness and vulgarity Donald Trump has brought into the political arena, or we will certainly lose our chance to defeat the Democratic nominee.”
