Rick Tyler, the spokesperson for Ted Cruz's presidential campaign, warned Sarah Palin on Tuesday that she would be tarnishing her own reputation by endorsing Donald Trump.

Following rumors that former Alaska governor would announce her support for Trump at a rally in Ames, Iowa on Tuesday, CNN's John Berman asked Tyler if the endorsement would be a "blow to the Cruz campaign."

"I think it’d be a blow to Sarah Palin," Tyler replied. "Because Sarah Palin has been a champion for the conservative cause, and if she was going to endorse Donald Trump, sadly, she would be endorsing someone who’s held progressive views all their life on the sanctity of life, on marriage, on partial-birth abortion."

"If it's Sarah Palin, let me just say that I would be deeply disappointed," he added.
