Texas senator Ted Cruz has endorsed Ben Sasse in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Nebraska. From the Sasse campaign announcement:
“I have gotten to know Ben Sasse, and while Nebraskans have good choices, Ben is the strongest conservative voice running for United States Senate,” said Sen. Cruz. “Ben will not be just another vote in the Senate – he will be a leader in the fight to stop the Obama agenda and repeal ObamaCare from day one. We need strong reinforcements like him in the United States Senate.”
Sen. Cruz was elected in 2012, going from a virtual unknown to winning one of the most dramatic upsets for U.S. Senate in 2012.
“There is no more zealous defender of the Constitution than Ted Cruz,” said Sasse. “It’s an absolute honor to have the support of such a strong conservative leader in the fight against ObamaCare.”
Cruz will join Sasse at a rally on Friday in North Platte, along with fellow senator Mike Lee and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
Sasse faces former state treasurer Shane Osborn in the GOP primary for Senate on May 13. Both are seeking the seat held by retiring Republican Mike Johanns.
