Ted Cruz said he:

Ted Cruz said he was "wanting to be a good dad" when he was seen flying to a vacation destination in the midst of an energy and water crisis in his own state.On Thursday, the high-profile Republican lawmaker said his family lost heat and power, a similar fate that millions of his fellow Texans have endured since Monday.In a statement, he said he flew with his daughters who asked to take a trip with friends, assuring he was on his way back to Texas Thursday afternoon."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.

    Savannah Rychcik January 28, 2021 0 Comments Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) is adamant he did not attempt to overturn the election when he voted to challenge the electoral results. “I never said that the goal was to overturn the election. That was never the point and it was never possible,” Hawley said during an interview with St. Louis radio station KMOX. He added, “I think we need to have a debate about election integrity. I think this is the right forum to do it in. This was never about overturning an election, but it is about Congress exercising its oversight capacity. It is about shining a light on what some of these states did.” Hawley stressed he never intended to overturn the election and denied he ever incited the violence that swept the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. “That’s just a lie. That is a lie told...
    He now says he 'underestimated' the 'authoritarianism' of officials trying to keep people safe. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) admitted on Tuesday that he had been wrong to "guarantee" that Democratic officials would immediately reopen all businesses after the election if Joe Biden won. "Twitter Left is aghast—seems the media/commie list-serve activated them all," he tweeted, referencing a now-viral video of his own July interview. "Two observations: (1) Biden has *still* not been sworn in & (2) perhaps I underestimated the vicious authoritarianism of today’s Left—so willing to destroy restaurants, bars, small businesses, lives...." The video, posted on Sunday by a Twitter account called "Bad COVID-19 Takes," shows Cruz telling the Hill exactly four months earlier that Democratic mayors and governors were only restricting businesses and schools during the pandemic as part of a "cynical" political ploy to defeat Donald Trump....
    Senator Lindsey Graham has admitted he thinks Democrats 'have a good chance of winning the White House', days after Senator Ted Cruz said there could be a 'Democratic sweep' in the upcoming election.     The Senate Judiciary Committee Chair made the shock admission Wednesday during Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett.  His comments show signs of a growing lack of confidence within the Republican party that Donald Trump can secure another term, less than three weeks before election day on November 3. It comes as last week, Cruz, a staunch supporter of the president, voiced his fears that Trump would lose to Democratic rival Joe Biden because 'the hard left is showing up no matter what'.  Senator Lindsey Graham (pictured at Thursday's confirmation hearings) has admitted he thinks Democrats 'have a good chance of winning the White House' 'Y'all have a good chance of winning the White House....
    Republican Sen. Ted Cruz said he expects Democrats to pull some “shenanigans” to disrupt this week’s Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett. “The delay tactics of the Democrats aren’t going to work and I think we’re going to see, by the way, some more procedural games and shenanigans. I don’t know what they’re going to do, whether it’s try to boycott meetings or try to impeach the president but I think they’re going to try to do something to delay it,” Cruz said on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.” “It’s not going to work. I believe we have the votes and I believe Judge Barrett on the merits is going to be confirmed and confirmed by the end of the month before Election Day,” he continued. Barrett’s hearings begin Monday morning in the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has vowed to...
