U.S. Rep. Ron Paul has endorsed former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz for U.S. Senate, but that doesn't mean Cruz is returning the favor and endorsing Paul's presidential bid.
At a Tea Party rally in Austin on Sunday, Ron Paul and his son, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., gave ringing endorsements to Cruz's bid to replace U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. Ron Paul urged Texans at the event to "send Ted to the Senate because Rand needs help."
