Update on Brussels Attacks. Three suicide bombers—including two brothers—were responsible for Tuesday’s explosions in Brussels, according to Belgian authorities.

Bush Endorses Cruz. The former presidential candidate announced his support for the Texas senator in a Facebook post, saying Cruz was a “principled conservative” who could overcome “the divisiveness and vulgarity Donald Trump has brought into the political arena.” The move—which comes after Cruz’s overwhelming win in the Utah caucuses—reflects a new level of confidence in Cruz from the establishment.
