Fact-checking Ted Cruz who dropped out of presidential race

Donald Trump won a decisive victory in the Indiana primary on May 3, and that has prompted Texas Sen. Ted Cruz to suspend his 2016 presidential campaign.

Here is a snapshot of Cruz’s Truth-O-Meter scorecard on the night he pulled out. (See the current state of his scorecard, which updates automatically as we publish new fact-checks.)

Here at PolitiFact, we’ve been fact-checking Cruz since 2011, when he ran against an establishment favorite (then-Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst)  in a primary to win the Republican Senate nomination. He won the general election in 2012 and holds the seat until 2018.

At PolitiFact Florida, we covered the Cruz's battle with U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio about immigration, his misleading claim that the EPA tried to regulate puddles and his attack at the Miami debate about Trump's statement about Israel.
