It was only a matter of time before Jeb Bush “officially” announced his support for Ted Cruz. The Bushes were already on board. This only confirms what most of us already knew. Ted is 100% establishment and has their full backing. Now it’s official.
In a surprise announcement, Jeb Bush will endorse Ted Cruz on Wednesday.
Bush says in the statement: “Today, I am endorsing Ted Cruz for President … Washington is broken, and the only way Republicans can hope to win back the White House and put our nation on a better path is to support a nominee who can articulate how conservative policies will help people rise up and reach their full potential.”
“To win, Republicans need to make this election about proposing solutions to the many challenges we face, and I believe that we should vote for Ted as he will do just that,” the statement continues.
Cruz concludes the statement: “I’m truly honored to earn Governor Jeb Bush’s support … Governor Bush was an extraordinary governor of Florida, and his record of job creation and education innovation left a lasting legacy for millions of Floridians.”
“The political arm for the fiscally conservative group Club for Growth endorsed Ted Cruz for president late Tuesday night.
The group, which has never before endorsed in a presidential primary, has been running millions of dollars’ worth of attack ads against GOP front-runner Donald Trump.”
We hate to say we told ya so, but George Bush was Ted’s mentor and Ted sang him praise. Ted even likened himself to his mentor calling himself a compassionate conservative while helping to write the Bush amnesty plan. Establishment insider’s pledged allegiance to Cruz months ago. The National Review endorsed him and if you were paying attention you would know his votes didn’t live up to his outsider hype.
If it looks like an establishment duck and walks like a establishment duck, it is an establishment duck.
