Washington, Sep 24 : Ted Cruz has endorsed Republican nominee Donald Trump for the presidency in a stunning turn of events after a contentious primary filled with personal attacks and a dramatic snub at the Republican National Convention.
"After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump," Cruz wrote in a Facebook post on Friday, CNN reported.
"A year ago, I pledged to endorse the Republican nominee, and I am honoring that commitment. And if you don't want to see a Hillary Clinton presidency, I encourage you to vote for him."
"I am greatly honored by the endorsement of Senator Cruz," Trump said in a statement obtained by CNN.
