Ted Cruz may have just changed the entire election.
In an utterly stunning reversal from a previous position, he’s expected to announce his endorsement for Donald Trump, CNN is reporting. It’s no secret that Trump and Cruz had a contentious primary, which led to the rise of the “Never Trump” movement, but it looks like now the Texas Senator has come to his senses and sees how disastrous Hillary Clinton would be for the nation.
According to multiple sources, the endorsement from Cruz could come as early as this afternoon.
Reactions in Twitter were mixed:
"Donald was right. My dad killed JFK. Thanks and god bless." – Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz is no dummy. He knows that if he merges his "true" conservative base with the populists, he can win a future GOP primary.

Ted Cruz is up for Senate re-election in 2018 and doesn't want the President to be against him

Oddly enough, on the same day that we learn Cruz is about to endorse The Donald, another high-profile American said the same.
In one afternoon, we learn that both Ted Cruz and Kim Kardashian are considering supporting Trump. Exciting times

For those saying this election is like a reality show, I guess they might be right.
