By name, Rafael Edward Cruz, is an American politician who was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2012 and began his first term representing Texas in 2013.
Throughout his life, Ted Cruz has proven to be a passionate and effective fighter for limited government, economic growth, and the Constitution.
His father, Rafael Bienvenido Cruz, was born in Cuba but fled to the United States in 1957 after being imprisoned by the Fulgencio Batista regime. Ted’s mother, Eleanor Elizabeth Wilson, was a native of Delaware. When he was born in 1970, the family was living in Alberta, Canada, where his parents worked in the oil industry. Because he was born to an American mother in Canada, Cruz became a dual U.S.–Canadian citizen.
In the U.S. Senate, Ted has led the fight to repeal Obamacare, to secure the border, and to confirm Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. He has also led the fight to defend life, marriage, the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, and our entire Bill of Rights. And most importantly, he’s kept his promise to speak the truth and do what he said he’d do.
Ted has proven to be the exact type of courageous conservative we need in the U.S. Senate to restore economic growth, defend our Constitution, and protect the values we all hold dear.

From everything we know so far, the coronavirus is not that big of a deal. Or, I should say, COVID-19, because in fact there are many other varieties of the coronavirus; so, strictly speaking, its a coronavirus, not the coronavirus. But that nuance … continue reading...
