Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is endorsing Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for president, Politico reported. 

Bush, who dropped out of the race last month, confirmed the endorsement on Wednesday in an email from the Cruz campaign.

"For the sake of our party and country, we must move to overcome the divisiveness and vulgarity Donald Trump has brought into the political arena, or we will certainly lose our chance to defeat the Democratic nominee and reverse President Obama’s failed policies," Bush said in the statement, according to The New York Times.

The news comes hours after Cruz was declared the winner of Utah's Republican primary election.
