(WE) Texas Sen. Ted Cruz finally threw praise Donald Trump’s way.
The relatively ostracized senator commended Trump’s stance on an issue of Internet freedom, marking a noticeable change of tone for the GOP nominee’s most formidable primary competitor.
Cruz has proposed to block the transfer of control over a key component of the Internet before President Obama exits the White House, as the Washington Examiner’s Rudy Takala previously reported. On Wednesday, Cruz tweeted his appreciation of a statement put out by the Trump campaign regarding control of the Internet.
“Appreciate @realDonaldTrump’s support of our efforts to keep the Internet free,” Cruz tweeted, linking to the Trump campaign’s statement from policy adviser Stephen Miller, a former aide to Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions.

Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway responded to Cruz’s tweet by commending the Texas senator’s public comment. Conway formerly worked for a pro-Cruz super PAC that shifted gears to boost Trump after the GOP primary.
“And we appreciate @tedcruz appreciating @realDonaldTrump. Over to you, @jeffroe,” Conway tweeted, tagging Cruz’s presidential campaign manager Jeff Roe.
The tweets between Cruz and Trump’s team represent a much different tone from when the Texas senator declined to endorse the Republican nominee at the GOP convention in July.
