I started hearing about this politician just today. He is junior Senator from Texas and he can talk and talk and ................. In fact he is on a marathon filibuster, a filibuster that may end up shooting the Republicans in the foot. But enough of the filibuster, who is this guy? I found some interesting facts and trivia about Ted Cruz, so here we go.
- His full name is Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz
- He is Hispanic, but doesn't look it
- He was born in Canada
- His father is Cuban
- His mother is American of Irish and Italian descent
- He supports gun rights - remember he is from Texas
- Opposes same sex marriage
- He would rather shut down the government than have Obama care go into affect.
