"After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump," Cruz said in a statement, which the Texas Tribune reported.

Cruz goes on to mention "six vital issues" where Trump's "positions present a clear choice for the American people."
Among them, the Supreme Court, Obamacare, energy, immigration, national security, and Internet freedom.
