Good boy, Teddy. He owed Justin one anyway, since he was endorsed by him during the Senate Primary or Runoff, forget which.

If only I knew what the people of Michigan thought of Ted Cruz and whether this would even matter.

I had the same question. You never know what helps, what hurts, and what is a wash.

As a Cruz skeptic it's hard to find much fault in his actual actions, other than the red-meat-for-the-rubes foreign policy stuff.

Came here to post this. GG. Paul and Cruz need to do better in electing members to the House

MEH!

Amash is up by 20% in the polls and now he endorses. He's just trying to improve his teaparty credentials. Cruz needs Amash a whole lot more than Amash needs Cruz.

Not that any of them will read this...but

Can you say "The following is paid for by [candidate] for [position]", "I'm [politician and I approve of this message", [message]

say "Paid for by..." at the end made it sound like Cruz was paid by the campaign to elect.

I guess federal laws determine some wording. It would be neat to spin it. Have the endorsing candidate say all the Fed lines in a different way.

" I'm Ted Cruz, this ad was paid for by Justin Amash for Congress. My endorsement comes free of charge. Because I truly believe in and support Justin Amash."

It seems like Amash was timing the release of this endorsement as it comes one day after Ellis was endorsed by a former Congressman, which got heavy news coverage.
