Ted Cruz just addressed the Sarah Palin issue via twitter
I love @SarahPalinUSA Without her support, I wouldn't be in the Senate. Regardless of what she does in 2016, I will always be a big fan.

This was damage control after his spokesman said her endorsement would damage her which triggered Palin’s daughter to respond via her blog.
It’s only a rumor.
Nobody knows who he is going to bring to his big campaign rally tonight in Ames, Iowa but Senator Ted Cruz staffers might have jumped into the deep water too early.
According to the Washington Times, some of Cruz’s staffers called
From Ted Cruz’s spokesman Rick Tyler:
“I think it [would] be a blow to Sarah Palin, because Sarah Palin has been a champion for the conservative cause, and if she was going to endorse Donald Trump, sadly, she would be endorsing someone who’s held progressive views all their life on the sanctity of life, on marriage, on partial-birth abortion,” Cruz campaign spokesman Rick Tyler said on CNN’s “New Day.”
“He was a TARP [supporter] — and it goes on and on and on,” Mr. Tyler said. “Donald Trump claims he’s changed all those views, but … if it was Sarah Palin, let me just say I’d be deeply disappointed.”
That set off Bristol who wrote on her blog today the following:
After hearing what Cruz is now saying about my mom, in a negative knee-jerk reaction, makes me hope my mom does endorse Trump. Cruz’s flip-flop, turning against my mom who’s done nothing but support and help him when others sure didn’t, shows he’s a typical politician. How rude to that he’s setting up a false narrative about her!
America doesn’t need that. We need someone who has a vision for economic prosperity, who won’t let us get kicked around in the world, and who will fight for our future.
I didn’t go to Harvard Law School, but I know this: You can like two people in a race, but there will only one president.
The audacity to suggest that because she chooses one over the other will somehow “damage” her just shows arrogance.
You’ve also said, “She can pick winners!” I hope you’re right, and that she endorses Donald Trump today for President.
