BREAKING: Cruz Secures Endorsement from an Unexpected Person in New Hampshire

Voting in the New Hampshire primary is in full swing, but that hasn’t stopped endorsements from coming in.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz received an endorsement in New Hampshire today that may not catapult him to being the top finisher, but could very well mean the difference between a second or third place finish.

The former state chair for the Rand Paul presidential campaign, state senator Kevin Avard, has endorsed Senator Cruz for president. CNN”s Tony Schleifer tweeted about the endorsement.

While Ted Cruz is not in full ideological alignment with Rand Paul, he has been seen as the most likely to win over Paul voters after Rand Paul’s exit from the presidential race. If Rand Paul supporters get out the vote and support Ted Cruz, it could mean the difference between a top three finish for Cruz or not.

Although it is early in the day for voting, current results as of 1:44 pm Eastern, with 3 out of 300 precincts reporting, Cruz is tied with Donald Trump and John Kasich at 24.3% of the vote.
