But doesn't seem credible to me.

Why? What does he gain?

The only way I can see it happening is if Trump reached out and apologized.

Which seems like exactly the thing that Kellyanne Conway would try to get him to do.

Absent that I don't see this as a credible rumor.

CNN is now saying that Cruz will endorse Trump. Looks like I was right.

Just saw this article
http://www.politico.com/story/2016/0...rsement-228540

and it seems like there is a lot of external pressure for him to endorse.





Also now you believe CNN?

I don't think it's a coincidence that they're reporting it the same day that it has spreading in conservative circles.

From what I've heard, the deal was for Cruz to have some input on some additional SCOTUS picks to be added to the list that Trump put out a while ago. This has been floating around for 4 or 5 days now, but today it seems to be for real and that his endorsement will happen before the debate, possibly today.

If it happens, I think late on Friday is when they would do it.

Twitter is all about it.

It doesn't make Cruz or Trump look good to me. Trump is a break from usual GOP, but turns SCOTUS choices over to Cruz?

He has no career after that stunt he pulled at the RNC.

Bending the knee to Trump gives him a chance at gaining his political career back.

Found the reason.

Robert Mercer is big funder of Cruz. He backs Trump now.

Still curious how they do this without Cruz looking weak.

Cruz doesn't want to get primary'd. As it stands right now, the party would probably support any republican to run against Cruz. There are rumors of Rick Parry or Mike McCaul challenging Cruz in 2018.

Cruz will look weak because he is weak. His support means very little at this point in the grand scheme of things.

Still good to see him bending the knee, from a moral standpoint.

Ben Howe ‏@BenHowe
Ultimate troll move:

Ted Cruz says he will endorse and then at press conference says it is dependent on Trump releasing taxes.
