Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is departing meetings at Trump Tower but declining to provide details of what he discussed with President-elect Donald Trump and his team.

Cruz tells reporters in New York that the “election was a mandate for change” and it’s now time for Republicans to deliver on their conservative agenda.

Asked whether he wants to be considered for a post in the Trump administration, Cruz says he looks forward to working closely with Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence “to repeal Obamacare” and confirm “a strong, conservative Supreme Court justice.”
