Ted Cruz Took His Kids to Cancun To Be A ‘Good Dad’, Confirms Return to Texas This Afternoon

RELATED POSTS

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has broken his silence on his trip to Cancun, Mexico while his home state suffers power outages and freezing temperatures after two winter storms hit the area over the past five days.

“This has been an infuriating week for Texans. The greatest state in the greatest country in the world has been without power. We have food lines, gas lines, and people sleeping in the neighbors’ houses. Our homes are freezing and our lights are out. Like millions of Texans, our family lost heat and power,” Cruz wrote in a statement.

He continued, “With school cancelled for the week, our girls asked to take a trip with friends. Wanting to be a good dad, I flew down with them last night and am flying back this afternoon. My staff and I are in constant communication with state and local leaders to get to the bottom of what happened in Texas. We want our power back, our water on, and our homes warm. My team and I will continue using all our resources to keep Texans informed and safe.”

This is a developing story and will be updated with more information as it becomes available.
