MIAMI — Utah Sen. Mike Lee endorsed Ted Cruz for president on Thursday afternoon.
“It’s time, my fellow Americans, to expect more. It’s time to expect freedom,” Lee said at the University of Miami. “It’s time to elect Ted Cruz as the next president of the United States.”
Two sources told BuzzFeed News earlier on Thursday of Lee’s plans to endorse Cruz.
The Lee endorsement comes on the heels of Carly Fiorina’s unexpected endorsement of Cruz on Wednesday. Both of these endorsements were rolled out in Miami, the home turf of Cruz’s rival Marco Rubio, whose campaign is struggling ahead of the Florida primary where he is trailing Donald Trump.
