Jeb Bush Endorses Ted Cruz for President [VIDEO]

Jeb Bush endorsed former rival Ted Cruz early Wednesday, dubbing the controversial Texas senator as โ€œa principled conservative.โ€ 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 โ€œhas demonstrated the ability to appeal to voters and win primary contests.โ€ During the campaign, Bush called Trump a โ€œbullyโ€ and โ€œnot a conservative.โ€ He repeated that sentiment Wednesday: โ€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.โ€
