Ted Cruz: Trump's Supreme Court Commitment Led To Endorsement

Sen. Ted Cruz said Monday that Donald Trump's commitment to pick a conservative as the next Supreme Court justice was a "significant" change that allowed him to endorse Trump last week.
"A number of things have changed," Cruz told radio host Glenn Beck Monday. "I'd say the most significant thing that changed was on Friday."
On Friday, Trump's campaign expanded their list of possible Supreme Court justices to 21, and committed to picking someone from that list.
"Now, that was a major shift," Cruz said. "In the past, he put out a list of 11 potential nominees, and the campaign's language had been [that] these are among the people who would be considered. On Friday, the campaign expanded that list to 21. It's a very strong list."
Cruz noted that Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, is on the list, and said Trump's new commitment to only consider people on that list is "not an accident."
"Several weeks ago when I sat down with Mike Pence in Washington, Mike asked me what would it take to get you on board, and for months, I had been telling Donald, I've been telling the campaign my greatest concern was protecting the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the rule of law," Cruz said. "I told Donald that before the convention. I said that over and over and over again.
