Businessman Donald Trump’s status as frontrunner remained intact Tuesday, winning Arizona’s Republican presidential primary as Texas Sen. Ted Cruz pulled off a victory in Utah’s GOP caucuses.
By winning in Arizona, Trump won all of the state’s 58 delegates. After earning more than 50 percent of the vote in Utah, Cruz will win all of the state’s 40 available delegates.
Just hours after the race was called in Utah for Cruz, former Florida Gov. Jeb became the latest member of the so-called Republican establishment to endorse the Texas senator in the hopes of helping him take down Trump.
“Today, I am endorsing Ted Cruz for President,” Bush said in statement. “Ted is a consistent, principled conservative who has demonstrated the ability to appeal to voters and win primary contests. Washington is broken, and the only way Republicans can hope to win back the White House and put our nation on a better path is to support a nominee who can articulate how conservative policies will help people rise up and reach their full potential.”
