Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum had a message for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz on Wednesday: It’s not about him and it’s time to keep his word. The former senator urges Sen. Cruz to give Donald Trump, his former rival and now Republican nominee for president, his “enthusiastic support” during his speech to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland Wednesday night.

“I think Ted Cruz should do what he pledged to do and stand up and say, ‘I’m going to support the nominee of the Republican Party,'” Sen. Santorum said. “This is not about Ted Cruz, this is not about any one of us, this is about –I’ve said this repeatedly– it is about the salvation of our Republic.”

RICK SANTORUM: I think Ted Cruz should do what he pledged to do and stand up and say, ‘I’m going to support the nominee of the Republican Party.’

And Donald Trump is the nominee of the Republican Party. It is time for Ted Cruz to step up and support him. I’m hopeful he’ll do that. He’s been given a big stage to do it.

This is not about Ted Cruz, this is not about any one of us, this is about –I’ve said this repeatedly– it is about the salvation of our Republic. Hillary Clinton is going to be able appoint five Supreme Court justices under 50 who do not beleive the Constitution is worth the paper it is printed on.

They will rewrite the Constitution and we will lose our Republic. I know that sounds really extreme, but it is really true. And the fact of the matter is that Donald Trump is the only thing that can stop that from happening.

Ted Cruz gets that, I know he knows how important this is. He is a Supreme Court lawyer. If he gives anything short of enthusiastic support I will be disappointed.
