Cruz: ‘Entire Ideological Spectrum’ of the GOP Is Backing Me

Wednesday on “CBS This Morning,” Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said his endorsements from Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, Mike Lee and Mark Levin show the “entire ideological spectrum” of the Republican Party was uniting behind his candidacy.

Cruz said, “Well, I’m very grateful to have the support of Governor Jeb Bush and it’s really an indication of what were nationally, we are seeing Republicans uniting behind our campaign. You know last night we had a tremendous victory the state of Utah. We were very much hoping to break 50 percent which would give us all of the delegates. Not only did we break 50 percent we ended up with the landslide of 69 percent, nearly 70 percent. And that we are seeing is we’re seeing Republicans uniting behind our campaign. Because we’re the only campaign — Utah is now the tenth state where we have beaten Donald Trump. It’s interesting the last ten days we’ve been endorsed by Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, Mike Lee and Mark Levin, now you want to talk about the broad spectrum of the Republican party —that is the entire ideological spectrum. And what we’re seeing is Republicans uniting behind this is the only campaign that has beaten Donald Trump over and over again.”
