Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has endorsed Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz.

The delegate math is inching GOP Front-runner Donald Trump’s way after his decisive win in the state of Arizona on Tuesday night.
Trump added all of the state’s 58-delegates to his total. He now has 60-percent of the delegates needed to secure the nomination. Put another way. Trump needs another 498 delegates out of the remaining states.
The bad news for Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz is he can’t reach the nominating threshold and there’s only one caucus state remaining. That being North Dakota.
But there’s more good news for Trump.
A new Quinnipiac University Poll has Trump now winning head-to-head races against either Cruz or Ohio Governor John Kasich.
Here’s how the situation breaks down.
Trump is expected to win the remaining northeastern states. Most of which are “Winner-Takes-All” or “Winner Takes Most” in awarding delegates.
Out west. Trump is leading in California.
You can hand Cruz wins in the remaining mid-west and northwest states and Trump still secures the minimum nominating threshold.
Cruz is now playing-up his new endorsement by Former Florida Governor and GOP Contender Jeb Bush.
Somehow I don’t think this will help the first-term senator.
