(Reuters) - Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz announced on Monday he received the endorsement of U.S. Representative Steve King of Iowa, an outspoken conservative on immigration issues.

"With Ted Cruz, conservatives no longer have to accept a Republican nominee who doesn't truly share our values," King said in a statement on Cruz's campaign website. "I am endorsing Ted Cruz because I know we can trust him to do exactly what he says he will do."
