While Trump dominated the Super Tuesday headlines, Cruz was hot on his trail with big wins in Texas and Alaska.

Here's what CBS News had to say:

Including Iowa's kickoff caucuses last month, Cruz has now notched four state wins in the Republican primary contest. With the support of white evangelical conservatives, Cruz earned victories in Oklahoma, Texas and Alaska Tuesday.

"America shouldn't have a president whose words would make you embarrassed if your children repeated them," Cruz said. "Our president should make us all proud -- should inspire hope in all of us." He charged Trump is a "Washington dealmaker" who has used "government power for personal gain" and who has turned his back on pro-life principles and Second Amendment rights.

In his speech, Cruz also called on his fellow White House hopefuls to consider withdrawing from the race, so conservatives could unite behind Cruz and put an end to Trump's momentum.

"Republicans, together we have a choice. We are blessed with a deep, talented, honorable field," he said. "For the candidates who have not won a state, I ask you to prayerfully consider our coming together, uniting." And for those voters "who have supported other candidates, we welcome you on our team, united standing as one."

With a serious ground game and a decent war chest, Ted Cruz doesn't show any signs of slowing momentum.
