Conservative hero Sen. Ted Cruz endorsed Libertarian hero Rep. Justin Amash in a new radio ad airing in west Michigan on Tuesday.

“Washington needs more conservatives with backbone - more conservatives like Justin Amash,” Cruz says. “Justin and I have fought to repeal Obamacare, to defend the right to life and to uphold the Constitution against Barack Obama and his cronies.”

Cruz closed the ad by calling Amash “west Michigan’s principled conservative.”

Amash said he was “honored” to have the “strong support” from Cruz.

Amash currently enjoys a 22-point lead over his challenger, Brian Ellis, with their primary less than a month away on August 5.
