Texas U.S. Senator and 2016 presidential candidate, Ted Cruz, made the correct choice this Friday, in announcing he will be voting for Republican Nominee Donald J. Trump to be our country’s next President of the United States.

Cruz cited the two main reasons based on six vital issues in his statement as to why he’ll be voting for Trump on November 8th, is because, one, he wanted to keep his promise that he made  during the original debate with his colleagues over a year ago, that he will support whoever is the nominee, and two, because Trump will sign legislation from Congress, if Republicans still hold the majority, to get rid of Obamacare, the Affordable Health Care Act that has affected millions of Americans negatively.

The other four issues Cruz felt could not be managed without harm to our country, were energy, immigration, national security and the freedom of the Internet. He also stressed the importance of the Supreme Court and the importance of appointing Judges who will uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

The mainstream media’s talking points are choosing the go to print headline word, “stunning,” in terms of his decision.

Not so, in that it is the right decision, both as a Republican who truly supports his Party and the forthcoming agenda, as well as the many voters from all across the country, who want to “make America great again,” as Trump’s campaign slogan declares. Cruz, is an impressive man and U.S. Senator who should not be left on the sidelines, if Trump takes the White House this November.

Cruz, well known for his educational achievements, earned two Ivy League college degrees.  With a major in public policy, he graduated cum laude from Princeton University, and went on to earn a degree from Harvard Law School. Renowned for his debating skills, where he excelled at Princeton and Harvard on a national level, he is both admired and loathed for being too smart for the room among his Senate colleagues today.

As a child born to an American mother and Cuban father, he was raised for a few years in Canada before moving to Texas. He attended private schools before going on to higher education. After earning his juris doctor degree from Harvard, he went on to serve as a law clerk, notably for Chief Justice of the United States, William Rehnquist. Cruz then worked for a law firm that dealt with the NRA (National Rifle Association) and in preparing testimony needed for democrat President William J. Clinton’s impeachment.

Perceivably, a difficult thing for Ted Cruz today, in stating he would be voting for his party nominee on Election Day, Donald J. Trump, other than the well-known barbs exchanged between the two competing candidates since debates began in latter 2015, must be the fact he worked on George W. Bush’s Presidential campaign in 1999. The majority of the Bush family have publicly declared they will not be supporting Trump on Election Day, and will be voting for Democrat Hillary Clinton, who many perceive as the worst Presidential candidate and nominee in our country’s history. {Editor’s note: more on this later}

The pressure from the Bush family must have been applied to Cruz, to not say anything publicly positive all the way until Election Day about his rival, who he came second to after the primaries by a large margin.

The Bush’s own namesake, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who also was a candidate for the presidential nomination this election year, dropped out early with only a handful of delegates, despite having the largest purse on hand in terms of fundraising, due to his family’s influence.

For Ted Cruz to make this proclamation today that he would be supporting Donald Trump and casting his vote for him on November 8th, shows he is many things.

A true Republican, who puts his Party before bitter losses or business-as-usual safety; a true Patriot, who as an incredibly intelligent man, sees the future of our country and how badly it would fail, and continue to fail, with a Clinton and former Obama administration, economically, domestically and internationally; A true gentleman, who perhaps acknowledges today however hard fought, and with whatever choices of words were used to win the nomination, positive or negative, Trump won with many odds against him; and a true visionary, who understands his place in politics is very needed.

Under a Trump administration, Senator Cruz can be appointed to many things where he will continue his long career as a valiant statesman, that defines his importance and career even more.

Trump’s Vice Presidential nominee, Indiana’s Governor Mike Pence, played a role in Cruz announcing his support for Trump.  Pence and Cruz exchanged multiple messages, spoke at length over the phone and then again in person, when Pence visited Capitol Hill a few weeks ago, a source close to Pence said.

Donald Trump had this to say about his fellow Republican’s support:

“I am greatly honored by the endorsement of Senator Cruz,” Trump said in a statement obtained by CNN. “We have fought the battle and he was a tough and brilliant opponent. I look forward to working with him for many years to come in order to make America great again.”
