President Donald Trump endorsed Republican Sen. Ted Cruz on Friday and announced he will make a trip to Texas to rally on Cruz’s behalf.

“I will be doing a major rally for Senator Ted Cruz in October. I’m picking the biggest stadium in Texas,” Trump tweeted. “As you know, Ted has my complete and total Endorsement. His opponent is a disaster for Texas – wear on Second Amendment, Crime, Borders, Military, and Vets!”

The senator gladly accepted Trump’s endorsement and welcomed him to Texas. (RELATED: Ted Cruz Fires Back In Defense Of The National Anthem With New Ad)

“Terrific!” Cruz tweeted. “Texas will be glad to see you.”

“Working together, we’ve won major victories for the people of Texas: historic tax cuts, repealing job-killing regulations, rebuilding the military & confirming strong constitutionalist judges,” Cruz continued. “And as a result, the Texas economy is booming!”

Trump’s announcement to rally in Texas came the same day news broke that Cruz’s challenger, Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke, previously tried to flee the scene after causing a high-speed crash while driving drunk.

Polls have shown O’Rourke gaining momentum in the last few months. A recently released Emerson poll puts the race at a statistical dead heat, however, Cruz is up 5.5 points according to the Real Clear Politics average.
