Ted Cruz accused Democrats of fleeing their posts and the takedowns wrote themselves
To Texas, where senator Ted Cruz isn’t happy with the Democrats’ tactics to stop restrictive voting legislation being passed by the Republicans.
They did this by leaving the State so they didn’t have the quorum required to vote the bill through. And Cruz is fuming, accusing them of ‘fleeing’ in a ‘political stunt’ which was undermining ‘basic election integrity’.
The Texas Democrats who have pulled this political stunt by flying to Washington, D.C. almost surely had to show ID to get on their jet, yet they’re throwing a fit because they don’t want basic election integrity steps strengthened in Texas.

And the takedowns wrote themselves.
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz — who took a vacation to Cancun during a state of emergency in Texas — says of Texas Dems who fled to block GOP voter restrictions: “They should be back in Texas doing their job.”
