Glenn Beck made a shocking admission during his show on TheBlaze on Wednesday saying, “You know, sometimes, I hug a little too long.”

Recounting the process of how Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] made the decision to drop out of the presidential race, Beck said, “[T]he decision was made at 3:00 yesterday morning, that if Indiana did not go, he would pull out. And everybody in the room was trying to convince him to stay in except for a couple of people.”  (RELATED: Glenn Beck: My Campaigning With Cruz Didn’t Cause Layoffs At The Blaze [AUDIO])

“[A]ll Ted said the entire night was ‘Yes, but the country.’ That’s all [Cruz] kept saying, ‘Yes, but the country,'” Beck retold. “Tears rolling down his cheeks, ‘Yes, but the country.'”

Beck noted that there were people in the room that were using that same argument in an attempt to persuade Cruz to stay in the race.

Then when Fiorina walked into the room, Beck said, “I will tell you, Carly Fiorina is one of the most impressive people I have ever met. She walked in and you know me, I’m a hugger and sometimes, I can be an awkward hugger. And you know, sometimes, I hug a little too long. So I hugged her and I let go and she hugged me harder.”

According to Beck, Fiorina then told him, “‘Thank you, thank you for standing true to your principles.’ And I looked at her and I said, ‘Are you kidding me.’ She said, ‘No, you don’t know how much you’ve meant to us.’ And I said, ‘Carly, you were probably the biggest patriot in America.'”

“She said, ‘How do you figure that,” Beck claimed. “And I said because you knew last week, you knew last week this was a suicide mission and you didn’t care about your reputation of getting in, announcing you’re going to be his vice president and a week later, there was a possibility it was over. She said it was the ‘right thing to do.’ She said ‘I believe.'”

Beck concluded his monologue claiming that Fiorina is “impressive.”
