Ted Cruz has had a rough week. First, he came in third in South Carolina. Then he had to fire his chief national spokesman, Rick Tyler. Then he came in third (again) in Nevada. And what’s the dark cloud hovering over all of it? He is losing evangelical voters – his “loyal” base – to Donald Trump at an increasing rate. So is there any light at the end of the tunnel for Ted? Maybe a little. Greg Abbott, the governor of Cruz’s home state of Texas, just endorsed him.
