TEXAS: Ted Cruz back from Mexico    Dare You - US Politics

Started 19-Feb by Ø¿æÜ (Wunderlost); 130 views.

Initially when Cruz acknowledged he had travelled to Mexico -- leaving his home state as thousands of constituents struggled without power or safe drinking water -- he blamed his daughters, aged 10 and 12, for his decision, saying they asked to go on the trip with friends, given that school was cancelled for the week.

Ted Cruz arrives back in frigid Texas, admits plans were to stay in Mexico through the weekend

Democrats and Republicans in Texas and beyond demand senator's resignation. U.S. Senator Ted Cruz flew into a storm of criticism on Thursday after leaving his home state of Texas in the grip of a deadly deep freeze, for a family holiday jaunt to the Mexican resort of Cancun he said he took to please his young daughters.

"It was obviously a mistake. In hindsight, I wouldn't have done it," the 50-year-old Republican told reporters as he returned to Houston.

Cruz said he had planned to stay through the weekend, but had second thoughts "almost the moment I sat down on the plane."
