On Tuesday, I reported that actor Chuck Norris would be joining Ted Cruz on the campaign trail and would presumably be endorsing the candidate. This is no longer the case as Norris has canceled his appearance at the event and has announced that he has not yet endorsed any candidate.
From The Blaze:
According to the pro-Cruz PAC, Norris, 75, was to attend a rally along with the GOP presidential hopeful, radio host Glenn Beck and Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin at an “American rally” in Concord, North Carolina. However, as rumors of a Norris endorsement of Cruz swirled, the “Walker, Texas Ranger” star apparently backed out of the event.
Kristina Hernandez, a spokeswoman for the PAC, confirmed to TheBlaze that Norris “will no longer be appearing” at the event held at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
“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.”
Norris had last endorsed former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
