CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt says he’s endorsing Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for president.

The first-term Republican announced his choice Wednesday morning in an interview with conservative Las Vegas-based radio host Heidi Harris.

Laxalt hosted Cruz and a handful of other candidates at his inaugural Basque Fry political gathering in August at a northern Nevada ranch. The Republican consultant who ran Laxalt’s underdog campaign in 2014 is leading Cruz’s Nevada campaign, and one of Laxalt’s assistant attorneys general has endorsed Cruz.

Laxalt’s administration has prioritized a fight against what he calls President Barack Obama’s federal overreach. He called Cruz a consistent and courageous conservative willing to fight Washington.
