Former presidential candidate Ted Cruz declined Tuesday to say that he will support Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump, leaving open the possibility of restarting his own White House bid if he sees “a viable path to victory.”
Pressed by supporter Glenn Beck in an interview if he could consider jumping back into the 2016 race if he wins Tuesday’s nomination contest in Nebraska, Cruz said, “My assumption is that that will not happen.”
But, he added, “The reason we suspended the race last week was that with Indiana’s loss I didn’t see a viable path to victory. If that changes we will certainly respond accordingly.”
Asked if he believes he can support Trump, Cruz said voters should not rush to make a decision.
“This is a choice every voter is going to have to make and I would note it’s not a choice we as the voters have to make today,” he said.
Cruz exited the 2016 race last week after losing the primary contest in Indiana, a state his campaign had long painted as a must-win in order to stay the course.
