Outgoing Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison said she'll do whatever she can to help Ted Cruz win her Senate seat in November.

Cruz was named the winner of the Republican primary over Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst for the seat being vacated by Hutchison who will retire after this term.

In a statement, Hutchison said the following:

“I’d like to congratulate both Ted Cruz and David Dewhurst on a hard fought primary.

In the coming months, I will do everything I can to support the election of Ted Cruz to represent Texas in the U.S. Senate and be available to him for any questions that will prepare him for the issues he will face.

It is more important than ever that we have leaders who are committed to get our country back on track – focused on cutting spending and creating jobs to grow our economy.”
