1 min read

Senator Ted Cruz returned to Texas from Cancún on Thursday after he was spotted boarding a plane to Mexico with his family. After he released an initial statement, saying that he accompanied his daughters on the trip while school was canceled for the week, he issued a subsequent statement, calling the trip a “mistake.”

The story comes amid the ongoing crisis in Texas, where millions were left without power in freezing temperatures due to a winter storm. Previously, Cruz seemed to imply that he was only traveling to Cancún for the night in order to accompany his daughters for their trip with friends.

The New York Times reported that they obtained texts from Cruz’s neighbors detailing the Cancún trip plans where Cruz reached out saying “Anyone can or want to leave for the week?”
