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.

  • 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???

  • You leave when you are needed the most. Position in the government is to serve the people and not to be served. A public servant is the first to lead and the last to leave. If your people suffer from arctic blast, you suffer too. If they stay in cold freezing temperatures, you stay. They voted for you because they trust and believe in you. You won not because of who you are, but what you can do to the people. You do not abandon them, you join them. You listen to them and not turn your ears away from them. You don’t run away for your own comfort. The people pay you to take good care of them. As you serve, your family is secondary because your priority is the family in your state.

  • 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?

  • Are we just gonna ignore that a week before we got the artic blast Texas asked DOE to lift federal regulations on energy output to sustain power in freezing conditions. But the Biden administration told Ercot to stay within "green energy" standards. Making texas purchase energy from other states at a ridiculous price screwing Texans. Plus are "green energy wind farms" were frozen and caused many outages also.
