Sen. Cruz confirms he traveled to Cancun during blackout disaster, says he was just trying to be a good dad

The latest from the Houston Chronicle:

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz was feeling the heat Thursday as photos circulated online showing the Texas Republican traveling to Cancún while millions in his home state were left in the cold without power and water, reeling from a major winter weather disaster.

The senator, who was spotted on a Wednesday flight, said in a statement that his family lost heat and power like many, and with school out for the week, his daughters asked to go. “Wanting to be a good dad, I flew down with them last night and am flying back this afternoon,” Cruz said. He was seen arriving back in Houston later in the day.
