Roughly one month after dropping his own bid for the White House, Jeb Bush endorsed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for president in an announcement on his Facebook page today.
The former Florida governor — and younger brother of President George W. Bush — suspended his presidential campaign in February, after finishing in fourth place in the South Carolina primary.
On Facebook today, Bush channeled Cruz's campaign talking points, calling Cruz "a consistent, principled conservative who has demonstrated the ability to appeal to voters and win primary contests, including yesterday’s Utah caucus."
He also spoke out against Donald Trump's "diviseness" and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. "For the sake of our party and country, we must 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, most likely Hillary Clinton, this fall."
He called on his followers to support Cruz by volunteering and donating to his campaign.
