AUSTIN (KXAN) — Republican Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz is picking up the endorsement of one of the most powerful men in Texas.

The Texas Senator announced today that Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick will endorse Cruz and serve as the Texas chairman of Cruz’s campaign.

The Associated Press says in the first nine months of the year, Cruz raised more than three times as much in the state as Jeb Bush.
