Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R) wife invited a number of friends and neighbors to join them on a last-minute Cancun getaway this week as winter weather left millions without power in the Lone Star State.
In group messages obtained by The New York Times, Heidi Cruz stated that her house was “FREEZING” and invited an unspecified number of people to join her family for a trip to the Mexican vacation spot until Sunday.
The messages, which were verified by a second, unnamed person in the thread, invited the friends to join them at the Ritz-Carlton in Cancun and noted the room price this week at $309 per night. She added that her family has stayed there “many times.”
Cruz’s trip Thursday, which he later cut short, was sharply criticized on social media due to the timing, which came as many in his home state were struggling without power, heat and potable water in freezing temperatures.
