*Update: National Review issued a correction to this story below at 9:23pm on Monday:

An earlier post stated that Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign was set to unveil a series of endorsements from Cruz’s fellow senators. The report was erroneous. As of this writing, the campaign has no pending Senate endorsements to announce. 


WASHINGTON — An unknown number of senators are set to endorse Texas Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] this week, according to a report from National Review.

New York real estate mogul Donald Trump, the Republican presidential front-runner who earned Sen. [crscore]Jeff Sessions[/crscore]’ endorsement, attacks Cruz repeatedly for not having a single senatorial endorsement.

Nebraska Republican Sen. [crscore]Ben Sasse[/crscore] is one of the few upper chamber GOP members to speak out against Trump, while Republican South Carolina Sen. [crscore]Lindsey Graham[/crscore] admitted that his party may have to “rally around Ted Cruz as the only way to stop Donald Trump.”

“Everyone makes their own decisions. I won’t make anything of it,” Arizona Republican Sen. [crscore]John McCain[/crscore], a past critic of Cruz told reporters on Monday of the potential endorsements of Cruz. McCain said if Senators and voters begin to coalesce around Cruz, then “that’s the will of the senators and voters.”
