(CNN) – Ted Cruz plans to back Donald Trump for the presidency as early as Friday, according to multiple sources familiar with the Texas senator’s decision, a stunning turn of events after a contentious primary filled with nasty personal attacks and a dramatic snub at the Republican National Convention.
The exact nature of the announcement isn’t yet clear.
Trump has moved closer to Cruz in recent weeks, hiring key allies such as Kellyanne Conway as his campaign manager, and Jason Miller as a spokesman.
Cruz met recently with Trump’s vice presidential nominee Mike Pence, the ticket’s bridge to the conservative base.
On Wednesday, Trump’s campaign expressed support for a Cruz-backed, Internet-related proposal in government funding talks in the Senate.
And Friday, Trump released a new list of conservative judges likely to appeal to the former Supreme Court clerk — including perhaps Cruz’s closest friend in Congress, Utah Sen. Mike Lee.
