Gov. Bryant endorses Cruz

Gov. Phil Bryant, on the eve of Mississippi’s presidential primary vote, has endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz, after meeting with him during a Cruz stop in Mississippi.

“I’m not going to get out and make a big show about it, but Sen. Cruz was in town today, and I met with him and gave him my endorsement,” Bryant said. “It was a hard choice — I know so many of them, Chris Christie, I know Jeb Bush, I know the ones still running now. They are good people … But I am also looking toward November and I think if Ted Cruz is nominated, he has a good opportunity to defeat the Democratic nominee.”…

…”I like Marco Rubio,” Bryant said. “I think he’s true at heart. I just had to make the decision on who I think has the best chance to win in November and who I liked best as a candidate and as a person. Ted Cruz has gone to Washington and showed courage and grit to stand up to things he disagrees with.”
