Former presidential candidate Ted Cruz took to the phone lines Wednesday to encourage residents of his state to get out and vote.

The senator was photographed and filmed making phone calls on behalf of Republican nominee Donald Trump from a phone bank in Fort Worth.

“Ted Cruz didn’t have much luck getting live human on line while making calls at Rep HQ’s in FTW today, left this voicemail a few times,” wrote Dallas Morning News journalist G.J. McCarthy on Twitter.

While the calls were meant to spur support behind the hotel mogul, many pointed out the senator did not say Trump’s name during the phone call.

Fearing political suicide, Cruz decided to publicly endorse Trump five days before the first presidential debate, following months of refusing to do so.

The Texas senator also praised his former opponent for performing well during the debate against Democrat contender Hillary Clinton.
