US senator Ted Cruz, who dropped out of the Republican presidential race a week ago after a crushing loss in Indiana, on Tuesday flirted with the idea of tossing his hat back into the ring.

Cruz, 45, said he would “respond accordingly” if voters chose him in Tuesday’s Republican primary election in Nebraska, in an interview by conservative radio host Glenn Beck.

Beck, who supported Cruz in the race for the Republican nomination, had asked the US senator from Texas whether he would reconsider getting back into the race if he won in Nebraska.

“I am not holding my breath,” Cruz said to laughter on Beck’s show on TheBlaze Network. “My assumption is that that will not happen. The reason we suspended the race last week is with Indiana’s loss I didn’t see a viable path to victory.”

“If that changes, we will certainly respond accordingly.”
