Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is endorsing fellow Texan Sen. Ted Cruz for president, touting Mr. Cruz as a principled constitutionalist who can be trusted with appointing U.S. Supreme Court justices.

“Unlike far too many in Washington, the Ted Cruz we’ve seen in the Senate is the same Ted Cruz we elected,” Mr. Abbott said in a minute-long video. “And he’s the same Ted Cruz I served with when I was the attorney general and Ted was our solicitor general.”

“Conservative values are at his core,” Mr. Abbott said. “He’s principled. He’s fearless. And he has true conviction.”

“Ted is a constitutionalist whose judgment I trust to appoint the right judges to the United States Supreme Court,” Mr. Abbott said.

Texas is one of about a dozen states that will vote March 1 in the GOP presidential contest. A poll out this week gave Mr. Cruz an 8-point advantage over front-runner Donald Trump in the state.
