Cruz reaffirms pledge to support GOP nominee, even if Trump

“My answer is the same,” Cruz told reporters here at a suburban St. Louis high school. “I committed at the outset, I will support the Republican nominee, whoever it is.”

“Ted Cruz is going to be the nominee,” interjected Carly Fiorina, a former GOP presidential candidate who is now backing Cruz.

But pressed again on whether Cruz stands by his decision to back Trump if he is the nominee, he continued: “I will support the Republican nominee, but let me be clear: Carly’s exactly right. We are going to beat Donald Trump.”
