Ted Cruz flew to Cancun with his family amid power crisis in Texas

Former Texas GOP congressional candidate and U.S. Army veteran Wesley Hunt says the rolling outages from winter weather are ‘inexcusable’ and calls for an ‘all hands on deck approach’ to energy policy.

Sen. Ted Cruz flew to Cancun, Mexico, with his family this week as Texas dealt with a winter storm that left millions without power, Fox News has confirmed.

Photographs of Cruz, R-Texas, at an airport began circulating on social media late Wednesday, with people alleging that the senator had left the state for Cancun amid a major crisis. A Republican source told Fox News that the allegations Cruz was traveling to the Mexican city are true.

“The photos speak for themselves,” the source said.
