Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-Idaho), one of the founding members of the right-wing House Freedom Caucus, is endorsing Republican presidential hopeful Ted CruzTed CruzSenate Republicans reluctant to rush vote on healthcare bill Healthcare bill 'not the last step' to repealing ObamaCare, Republican says Dem senator: GOP's healthcare approach will 'devastate Medicaid' MORE, according to the National Review

Labrador joins a growing number of Freedom Caucus members who have thrown their support behind Cruz, including Republican Reps.

Labrador took a subtle jab at Cruz last year when he was asked about the Texas senator's involvement in the caucus.

"You’ve talked to us about the Freedom Caucus more than Ted Cruz has talked to us about the Freedom Caucus,” Labrador told a reporter for The New Yorker in December.

Labrador's office wouldn't confirm the endorsement.
