Cruz was the closest competitor to now Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in the primary elections. The senator spoke at the Republican National Convention in July, but failed to endorse the nominee at that time. All of the major Republican presidential candidates pledged to support the eventual nominee during the primary election season. Cruz eventually endorsed Trump after Trump released an expanded list of potential U.S. Supreme Court nominees, should he be elected.
Pence initially endorsed Cruz in the primaries. He later became Trump’s running mate as the Republican vice presidential nominee.
