Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is reportedly trying to secure an endorsement from Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) before Super Tuesday.

According to Politico:

In the lead-up to Super Tuesday, Cruz is seeking other ways to reinforce his Southern credentials. In recent weeks, he has been aggressively appealing to Rand Paul for an endorsement. Yet three sources close to the Kentucky senator said Paul had rebuffed Cruz, saying that he had no intention of endorsing anyone anytime soon.
