ABC News reported that the president’s eldest son will be campaigning for Cruz — who ran against his father during the 2016 presidential election — on Wednesday at a rally in Wichita Fallas, roughly two hours outside of Dallas.
Trump is expected to be joined by his girlfriend, former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, the outlet reported.
The report comes months after Cruz said he contacted the president to seek support in his reelection campaign.

“I will be doing a major rally for Senator Ted Cruz in October,” Trump said in late August. “I’m picking the biggest stadium in Texas we can find. As you know, Ted has my complete and total Endorsement. His opponent is a disaster for Texas – weak on Second Amendment, Crime, Borders, Military, and Vets!”
Trump Jr.’s visit to Texas also reportedly precedes a campaign appearance from Vice President Pence, who is expected to campaign for Cruz at an event in Dallas in the coming week, the Dallas Morning News reported.
Though Texas hasn’t elected a Democrat to the Senate in decades, a number of polls have pointed to a narrowing margin between the two candidates.
Cruz leads O’Rourke by just 4.5 percent, according to the RealClearPolitics average of polls.
