[dcquiz] Neil Bush, the brother of former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush and former president George W. Bush, is joining [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore]’s campaign.

In a news release from the Cruz campaign, Neil and Maria Bush of Houston, Texas, were listed as one of several new members of its national finance team.

“We are seeing incredible momentum around our campaign,” Cruz said in a statement. “I am thrilled to welcome these new members to our outstanding team. This race is winnowing down between two candidates and this is further testament that conservatives are continuing to unite behind this campaign.”

Cruz’s campaign says they have raised $70 million, including $1.5 million after last week’s Super Saturday contests.

Jeb Bush dropped out of the Republican race for president after a disappointing finish in South Carolina. He has not yet endorsed any one, even as his state of Florida votes next week.
