SC Senator Lindsey Graham Endorses Cruz
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham says he is endorsing Ted Cruz.
Graham ended his own Presidential bid in December, then supported Jeb Bush and campaigned for him.
Today he vowed to reluctantly campaign and raise funds for the Texas Senator.
“I think he’s the best alternative to Donald Trump, he’s certainly not my preference, Senator Cruz is not, but he’s a reliable Republican conservative, of which I’ve had many differences with.”
“I doubt Donald Trump’s conservatism, I think he’d be a disaster for the party.” said Graham
The move is a sign that Cruz might be starting to gain some traction with his colleagues in the Senate.
Cruz picked up his first Senate endorsement from Utah Senator Mike Lee last week.
