DES MOINES, Iowa — An Iowa congressman says he knows who has his vote for president.
Republican Steve King gave his endorsement to Texas senator Ted Cruz Monday morning. King made the announcement at a news conference at the Des Moines Marriott.
“When I survey the challenges facing our country, and the slate of individuals who have stepped forward to offer to lead, one man stands out as the courageous conservative whom I believe can restore the soul of America. That man is Ted Cruz,” said King.
He didn’t endorse a presidential candidate in 2012 but in 2008 he endorsed Fred Thompson.
On his campaign website Cruz wrote, “I can’t thank Steve enough and know that his help gives us a significant advantage as we continue to grow and have success in Iowa and across the nation.”
