Ted Cruz travels to Cancun as Texans remain without power

Sen. Ted Cruz and his family flew to Cancun, Mexico, he confirmed in a statement to CNN, as a winter disaster in his home state left millions without power or water.
Cruz, a Texas Republican, said in the statement he flew down for a night because his daughters "asked to take a trip with friends."
"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," he said in the statement. "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."
Cruz tested negative for Covid-19 before returning, an aide told CNN.
His statement comes hours after multiple Twitter users posted photos showing Cruz and his family at Houston's airport and aboard a flight bound for Cancun, Mexico.

    Ted Cruz was born in Canada from Cuban decent, he believes he is white man, he doesn't believe to be a Latino. Ted Cruz is a Canadian man living in Texas. He is supposedly representing Latino interest in Texas. Texas has 38% latino population, about 35% of them of Mexican decent. He was ready for a coup d'etat in the United States, just like his fellow county man and childhood idol Fidel Castro. He also heavyly supported to build a wall to the neighbor Mexico. Ted Cruz needs to be flipped in the next election. Texas doesn't need a gusano in a land that used to be Mexican. Texans-Mexican let's flip this Canadian for a Texas born from Mexican decent. Let s go Texas!

    Well , he can work from home. He has a bad back so he can't shovel snow. And you work better with a clear mind. I bet he went to Senior Frogs and had booze poured down his mouth

    He was being a good dad and at the same time he was working on his computer. If any democrat had done this they would be praised by the fake news media. Yet cnn still refuses to talk about andrew cuomo being investigated for putting china virus patients in nursing homes where everyone died, and he is being investigated for sexual harassment. I guess the metoomovement only applies against repulbicans

    Explain to me: why the Democrats are questioning an Election in a House Race Mairette Miller-Meeks and Amy Hart. Amy Hart has gone to House Committee to get it overturned, instead of going through the Courts like POTUS Trump. This is happening in Iowa and they are hearing the case. Yet, they refused POTUS Trump. Why are the Democrats getting away with this , yet POTUS Trump was silenced? Explain I want to understand???? And this is nor in the Media???? Why???

    President Joe Biden’s nominee for U.S. attorney general, Merrick Garland, said during the first day of his confirmation hearing on Monday that the attacks on federal courthouses in the Pacific Northwest may not qualify as domestic terrorism because the attacks happen at night when the court is closed. “Let me ask you about assaults on federal property in places other than Washington, D.C. Portland for instance, Seattle,” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) said. “Do you regard assaults on federal courthouses or other federal property as acts of domestic extremism, domestic terrorism?

    what Ted Cruz did, travelling to Cancun so his kids are safe, is what immigrants do. They leave behind family, friends, language, carrer, etc. to live under the shadow of deportation for years or decades, because even that is better than the place they came from.

Plus are "green energy wind farms" were frozen and caused many outages also.

    Democratic New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham reportedly used thousands in taxpayer funds to purchase groceries, liquor, and dry cleaning for her personal use. Grisham racked up a $13,500 tab during the last six months of 2020, according to financial disclosures reported on by the Sante Fe New Mexican. Her bill allegedly included $6,500 in luxurious groceries such as Wagyu beef and tuna steaks, as well as bottles of tequila, vodka, gin, wine, and beer.
