Ted Cruz Endorses Rep. Ballinger for Ark. Senate

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has endorsed Rep. Bob Ballinger, R-Berryville, in his race for the Arkansas Senate. 

Ballinger has challenged Sen. Bryan King, R-Green Forest, for his seat in Senate District 5.

Cruz had the second highest amount of delegates in the 2016 GOP presidential primary, eventually losing to now President Donald Trump. 

In his endorsement for Ballinger, Cruz said, "Ballinger is a friend who worked tirelessly for my campaign across the state of Arkansas. Now, I am proud to endorse Bob for Arkansas Senate. Bob is committed to conservative values, economic freedoms and constitutional truths. I know he will serve Arkansas well."
