Glenn Beck FLIPS OUT After Interviewing Cruz: I Should Have Endorsed Rubio

Cruz went on to reiterate the reasoning laid out in his op-ed, including a desire to uphold his pledge to support the GOP nominee no matter what and Trump's new list of 21 potential Supreme Court nominees, whom Cruz believes are "in the mold of [Antonin] Scalia".

Meanwhile, Trump campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, who previously worked for a super PAC supporting Cruz, expressed her relief on social media.

And second, his belief that Democrat Hillary Clinton is "wholly unacceptable". Politico also found a rate sheet showing Cruz charges $22,000 for one email sent to 280,000 digital donors and $51,000 for an email sent to all 1.28 million supporters. He even implied he was by refusing to endorse Trump at the Republican National Convention, simply urging conservatives to vote their conscience. Ted Cruz gave his endorsement to Donald Trump in a Facebook post Friday. He faces a possible Senate primary challenge from Texas Representative Michael McCaul, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.

Caleb Howe, the managing editor of Red State, a conservative-leaning publication that is a fount of "Never Trump" sentiment, branded Cruz's endorsement as "Tedmaggedon" in a post early Saturday. Cruz did encourage readers to vote for Trump if they didn't want to see Hillary Clinton elected president. "And I thought Donald had the strongest debate performance he's had in this election cycle", the Texas senator said. Most refused to accept jobs with the Trump campaign when offered following Cruz's departure from the primary campaign this spring. Trump has not apologized for dragging Cruz's family into the race, and after the convention, he continued to discuss the lines of attack.

Cruz's rivalry with Trump became personal when Trump speculated that Cruz's Cuban father was involved in the Kennedy assassination and retweeted an unflattering picture of Cruz's wife. On Friday, he cited two reasons for his shift.

Despite attacks on both his wife and father, the Texas senator said he and his family had had chose to forgive Trump.

At the same time, the large staff that worked on Cruz's presidential bid pushed him not to endorse.

Cruz noted his qualms about Trump, saying, "I have struggled to determine the right course of action in this general election". "But the fact that he is publicly promising, 'I will nominate from these 21, ' I think creates a dynamic where compared to Hillary, who is promising to put left-wing ideologues, that's a clear choice". But instead of expanding upon his "many, many disagreements with Donald", Cruz opted to let the endorsement speak for itself.
