Texas Senator Ted Cruz is endorsing State Senator Patrick Colbeck for Governor.
“I’m proud to endorse Patrick Colbeck in the race to become Michigan’s next Governor," Cruz said in a statement. "He is exactly the sort of principled leader the citizens of Michigan need.”
Colbeck touted the Cruz endorsement in a press release Wednesday afternoon.
"Senator Cruz’s conservative record attracted millions of supporters in 2016 as he sought the Republican nomination for President. Colbeck served as the state chair for Cruz’s presidential campaign in Michigan in which Cruz came in second behind Donald Trump. Colbeck later encouraged voters to elect Donald Trump in the general election and Trump went on to become the first Republican to win the state since 1988.
