Sen. Ted Cruz to get first senate endorsement

Utah Sen. Mike Lee supports fellow Republican in anti-Trump campaign


As the anti-Trump Republican establishment sides with Sent. Ted Cruz,  the Cuban-American got his first senate endorsement from Utah Sen. Mike Lee. 

Lee announced his support ahead of Thursday night's debate at the Bank United Center in Coral Gables.  

Lee is closed to both Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio. But after recent primary victories, Cruz and not Sen. Marco Rubio was poised to be the most likely to beat the billionaire.  

Amanda Carpenter, Cruz's former communications director in the Senate, told Politico Cruz wants people to unite around his candidacy, but it's not going to happen if he is ignoring them. 

"They all believe the same things, he would do well to remind people of that," Carpenter said.
