A big primary next week in Indiana It could go a long way in deciding the Republican race and now a new endorsement.

FOX's Jared Halpern has more from Washington:

Less than a week before the next crucial Republican primary in Indiana, the state's governor has weighed in:

(Pence) "I'm not against anybody, but I will be voting for Ted Cruz in the upcoming Republican primary."

Republican Governor Mike Pence making that announcement on FOX News Radio's Indianapolis affiliate WIBC, also heaping some praise on frontrunner Donald Trump:

(Pence) "Who I think has given voice to the frustration of millions of working Americans."

Cruz is counting on a big win in Indiana after two weeks of setbacks in the Northeast have propelled Trump to a large delegate lead. Should Trump capture all or even most of Indiana's 57 delegates, his path to the nomination would become far easier.
