Chuck Norris Won’t Campaign with Cruz
Although Chuck Norris endorsed Ted Cruz earlier in the week, he will not campaign for the candidate.
“Late Wednesday evening, we learned that Chuck Norris will not be attending the rally in Charlotte, North Carolina, and has not officially endorsed any candidate for president,” the PAC announced Thursday.
“We regret that our publicity implied otherwise and apologize to Mr. Norris and our rally participants for the confusion.”
The Hill reports:
Rumors about Norris making a presidential endorsement were false, according to Jeff Duclos, a spokesman for Norris.
Norris said in a statement to The Blaze that each Republican candidate has “strong points” and “some have the potential to be great presidents.”
“I would like to clarify for the record that I have NOT officially endorsed any candidate for president, contrary to what has been widely reported in the media,” Norris said in a statement provided to The Blaze Wednesday.
“I am going to let the citizens of America decide who they think would be the best candidate for the GOP,” Norris said.
“When the candidate is decided, I will support that person enthusiastically.”
Norris also posted on Facebook that there was “false information going around about my personal presidential endorsement.”
Norris had previously voiced his support for former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee before the candidate ended his presidential bid.
