By Bob Unruh. A flurry of headlines hit the web early Wednesday giving action movie and television star Chuck Norris’ highly coveted endorsement in the presidential race to Sen. Ted Cruz.
And while Norris may eventually support Cruz, if he is the GOP’s presidential nominee, the reporting appears to have bombed.
In a statement to WND, Norris said, “I would like to clarify for the record that I have NOT officially endorsed any candidate for president, contrary to what has been widely reported in the media.”
He continued, “Each of the remaining Republican candidates have strong points and, as I’ve said in my WND culture warrior column, I believe some have the potential to be great presidents. However, I am going to let the citizens of America decide who they think would be the best candidate for the GOP. When the candidate is decided, I will support that person enthusiastically.”
The erroneous media reports of a purported Norris endorsement were circulated by outlets such as the Dallas Morning News and the Daytona Beach News Journal, which said, quoting the Washington Post’s Emily Heil, “Ding, ding, ding! It seems we have a winner – the coveted Chuck Norris endorsement goes to Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.” (Read more from “Update: Chuck Norris Presidential Endorsement? Not so Fast!” HERE)

By Kevin Whitson. Seventy five year old martial artist, actor, and born-again Christian, Chuck Norris is set to hit the campaign trail in North Carolina next week for Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz. Norris will reportedly join talk-show host and commentator Glenn Beck, as well as retired Army Lt. General Jerry Boykin.
The trio will campaign for Cruz in Concord, NC in what rally organizers are calling, “An American Rally with Ted Cruz.” The event will be held at the zMax Dragway on the grounds of the Charlotte Motor Speedway, Sunday March 13 at 2:00pm.

According to the Daily Caller, Norris’ first choice for President back in May of 2015 was Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR), but that was before Huckabee decided to call it quits in his bid to become the Republican presidential nominee. Huckabee officially dropped out of the race in February of 2016.
