During a radio interview with Glenn Beck on Tuesday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) dodged a question about whether he will be able to support Donald Trump as the Republican presidential nominee.

“This is a choice every voter is going to have to make,” Cruz said when asked whether he will back Trump.

The Texas senator noted that the Republican convention isn’t until July and that the general election is not until November.

“We’ll see what happens,” he said. “We need to watch and see what the candidates say and do.”

Cruz placed some of the blame for Trump’s rise on the media, lamenting the amount of “free air time” the real estate mogul received.

“There’s no doubt we need to think hard about what is the role of a handful of network executives,” Cruz said.
