(SunshineStateNews.com) — Placing third in most polls of Florida, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, made his final appeal to Sunshine State Republicans on Monday, noting he has the support of almost 400 leading conservatives across the state.

Trailing businessman Donald Trump and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., in most of the polls, Cruz does not appear to be positioned to claim the 99 delegates on the line in the Florida primary on Tuesday. However there are some polls showing Cruz within striking distance of Rubio to claim second.

In recent days, Cruz, who is second only to Trump in the total delegate count, focused more attention on Illinois and North Carolina where he can add delegates on Tuesday as opposed to winner take all states like Florida and Ohio.

Despite that, at the end of last week, the Cruz team trumpeted the endorsements of almost 80 pastors and religious conservatives from across Florida.
