Cruz wins endorsement of Wisconsin Gov. Walker

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz says Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s “heroic” battle with unions inspired him and millions of others.

Cruz won the endorsement of the two-term Republican governor on Tuesday and touted his backing during a rally outside of Milwaukee.

Cruz calls Walker a “strong, principled conservative” and notes that he won three elections over four years. Walker defeated a recall election in 2012 spurred by his push to all-but-eliminate collective bargaining for public workers.

Cruz said “millions of men and women all across the state of Wisconsin stood with Gov. Scott Walker” during that fight.

Cruz described that a “heroic stand” that inspired millions across the country, including him.

Walker says he plans to campaign with Cruz this week.
