Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-Idaho), one of the founding members of the right-wing House Freedom Caucus, is endorsing Republican presidential hopeful Ted CruzRafael (Ted) Edward CruzTrump can save Republicans and restore sanity to California in 2018 Cruz says Cambridge Analytica assured him its practices were legal Dem battling Cruz in Texas: ‘I can understand how people think this is crazy’ 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. Mark Meadows (N.C.), Tim Huelskamp (Kan.), Ken Buck (Colo.), Alex Mooney (W.Va.) and Paul GosarPaul Anthony Gosar13 House Republicans call on Sessions to appoint second special counsel Week ahead: Lawmakers put spotlight on energy infrastructure House Oversight a gavel no one wants MORE (Ariz.).

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.
