GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz gave former rival Scott Walker an assist Monday, tweeting support for the Wisconsin governor as he attempts to retire his presidential campaign debt.
Walker has withheld his sought-after endorsement since ending his campaign for the GOP nomination race in September. Cruz’s tweet, including a link to a donations page for Walker, suggests he’s seeking Walker’s support.
“#CruzCrew – I stand with my friend @ScottWalker & hope you will too!” the Texas senator wrote. Walker thanked him in response.
Walker had $982,513 at the end of September, but he had more than $1.6 million in debt, according to his latest Federal Election Commission report. He’s been seeking contributions to officially close the books, offering a “limited edition lapel pin” for donations or $30 or more. More
