Some 400,000 North Texans remained without power for the third consecutive day on February 18—and both food and water were scarce as the population dealt with an energy crisis in the middle of a blizzard.
Photographs of Cruz at an airport began circulating on social media late Wednesday, with people alleging that the senator had left the state for the tropical holiday spot in southeast Mexico.
Meanwhile, Democrats in the Lone Star State were calling on Cruz to resign. Indeed, MSN reported, Texas Democratic Party chairman Gilberto Hinojosa called Cruz’s actions “disturbing and disappointing.”
“The Texas Democratic Party calls on Ted Cruz to resign or be expelled from office,” Hinojosa said. “Barring that, we will put all of the resources we have into defeating him and every Texas Republican who abandoned us in this disaster, including Governor Abbott and Lieutenant Governor Patrick, in 2022 and 2024. We are in a battle for the soul of our state. We must restore ethics, competence, and a government that works for the people.”
As temperatures have plunged dangerous record lows across the state, at least 36 people have died.
His office did not respond to multiple requests for comment on Thursday morning.
