UPDATED: Report: Cruz To Announce First Senate Endorsements This Week

March 7, 2016 2:12 p.m.

This story has been updated.

After the National Review reported Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is set to unveil his first endorsements from colleagues in the Senate this week, the magazine corrected the record to show the story was wrong.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was set to unveil his first endorsements from colleagues in the Senate this week, according to the original report from the National Review. But on Monday night, editor Eliana Johnson wrote in a correction that the report was “erroneous.”

As Republican frontrunner Donald Trump continues to rack up primary wins, the National Review reported more than four senators were slated to endorse Cruz’s presidential bid, an unnamed source with knowledge of the situation told the magazine. National Review later posted an update on that story clarifying that the number of senators “who will endorse Cruz is not known.”

Cruz has yet to announce a single endorsement from another senator, a fact critics have pointed to as evidence of the candidate’s unlikability.
