Mike Lee is reportedly going to endorse Ted Cruz sometime this afternoon:
BUZZFEED – Utah Sen. Mike Lee will endorse Ted Cruz for president on Thursday afternoon, two sources with knowledge of Lee’s plans told BuzzFeed News.
Lee opted to stay on the sidelines for most of the 2016 primary race, which has featured three candidates whom he considers to be his closest friends in the Senate: Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio.
Rubio is polling well in Lee’s home state of Utah, and his campaign had hoped to score the senator’s endorsement.
The Cruz campaign declined to comment.
I’m glad Mike Lee is endorsing Cruz. He’s in good company with Mark Levin and Carly Fiorina.
Hopefully these endorsements will have an effect on the race.
