Rick Perry has come out and endorsed Ted Cruz as the most consistent conservative in the race:

NBC NEWS – Rick Perry, the former governor of Texas and a two-time GOP presidential candidate, has endorsed Ted Cruz’s 2016 White House bid.

“Of those individuals who have a chance to win the Republican primary, at this juncture, from my perspective, Ted Cruz is by far the most consistent conservative in that crowd,” Perry said in an interview with POLITICO. “And that appears to be down to two people.”

Perry, who dropped out of the 2016 race last September, backed his fellow Texan just one week before the Iowa caucuses, the first nominating contest of the presidential campaign and one in which Cruz is locked in a close matchup with real estate mogul Donald Trump.

I’m very glad to see Rick Perry stand by conservatism in endorsing Ted Cruz. Practically speaking, I’m not sure how much good this will do but every little bit helps and this is the week Cruz needs the endorsement.
