Jeb Bush endorses Ted Cruz for president

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Former Florida governor and presidential candidate Jeb Bush announced Wednesday that he would endorse Texas Senator Ted Cruz for the Republican nomination.

Bush said on Twitter, "Ted is a consistent, principled conservative who has shown he can unite the party."

He added on his Facebook page that Republicans "must overcome the divisiveness and vulgarity Donald Trump has brought into the political arena" or risk losing to Hillary Clinton.

Bush also warned Republicans against nominating Donald Trump. who picked up 58 more delegates Tuesday with a win in Arizona's primary. 

Trump lost the GOP vote in Utah to Cruz, who won more than 50 percent of the vote. 

Cruz says Bush's endorsement provides further evidence that Republicans are uniting to nominate a proven conservative to defeat Clinton in November.
