WASHINGTON–Texas Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] reiterated on Tuesday if circumstances changed his campaign would “reconsider” whether or not to re-enter the Republican presidential primary. Cruz suspended his campaign last week after he lost the Indiana primary to now presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.

“Listen, we have suspended the campaign. We have suspended the campaign, because I can see no viable path to victory. Of course, if that changed, we would reconsider things. But let’s be clear. We are not going to win Nebraska today,” Cruz told The Daily Caller at a presser outside of the Texas senator’s office.

“There should be no mystery and no excitement in that. We’ve withdrawn from the campaign and it’s in the hands of the voters. If circumstances change, we will always assess changed circumstances, but I appreciate the eagerness of all the folks in the media seeing me back in the ring, but you may have to wait a little bit longer for that,” Cruz said as he began to walk into his office and was welcomed with applause from his staff.

Tuesday is Cruz’s first day back from the campaign and he was peppered with questions over whether or not he plans to endorse Trump. Cruz made no indication he plans to endorse the New York developer yet.

“There are two and a half months until the Republican convention, six months until the general election,” Cruz told the throng of reporters outside his Washington D.C. office.

“There will be plenty of time for voters to make the determination who they’re going to support,” he said, adding that Trump will need to urge Cruz supporters to support him when the general election rolls around.
