Earlier today, Donald Trump earned the endorsement of Jerry Falwell Jr., president of Liberty University and the son of the late Jerry Falwell:
Great honor- Rev. Jerry Falwell Jr. of Liberty University, one of the most respected religious leaders in our nation, has just endorsed me!

Exit question: Will the endorsement help?
Trump continues to cut deep into Cruz’s born-again Christian base. Last week Palin, and now Jerry Falwell Jr. https://t.co/KvPpIbPe5U

Jerry Falwell Jr. endorses billionaire with three wives who recently told evangelicals he doesn't pray for forgiveness. Huh.
