With all eyes on his state’s upcoming primary, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, endorsed Texas Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] Friday.

Pence made the announcement in an interview with Indianapolis radio host Greg Garrison. He called Cruz a “principled conservative who has dedicated his career to advocating the Reagan agenda.”

Pence also praised front-runner Donald Trump.

“I particularly want to commend Donald Trump, who I think has given voice to the frustration of millions of working Americans with a lack of progress in Washington, D.C., and I’m also particularly grateful that Donald Trump has taken a strong stand for Hoosier jobs, when we saw jobs in the Carrier company abruptly announced leaving Indiana, not for another state, but for Mexico,” Pence said.

“I’m grateful, I’m grateful for his voice in the national debate,” he continued. “I’m not against anybody, but I will be voting for Ted Cruz in the upcoming primary.”
