It’s back to Texas for Heidi Cruz and the kids.
The family of Lone Star State Sen. Ted Cruz was spotted Saturday afternoon lining up at Cancun’s airport for the two-and-a-half-hour flight home.
Later Saturday, they were seen dragging their suitcases through a Houston airport.
The senator’s brood had carried on without him during their Wednesday-through-Saturday vacation at the Mexican resort, after Cruz himself was shamed into turning tail and abandoning the tone-deaf trip.
Cruz has faced massive blow-back for traveling to Cancun, with Houston’s own police chief chiding the senator for leaving millions of constituents behind to face historic cold weather, lingering power outages and mounting water shortages.
Even ex-N.J. Gov. Chris Christie has enjoyed a moment of schadenfreude at his expense.
Cruz had at one point blamed the trip on his daughters, who are ages 10 and 12, saying they had asked for the trip and he was just being a “good daddy.”
But now the kids will have to quarantine for seven to ten days from their pricey Houston private school.
