Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott made an early appearance in the spin room ahead of Thursday's debate to tout Ted Cruz, saying he's confident the senator will win his home state on Super Tuesday.
“Sen. Cruz is going to do quite well on primary day,” said Abbott, who appeared at an event with Cruz a day earlier.
“The states that have gotten to know Cruz the best, the people of the state of Texas, the people of Iowa, have voted for Ted Cruz. I think now, after Tuesday, he’s going to have a better opportunity to connect with people across the country and have a far better pathway to winning the nomination.”
