Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz was heckled on a flight Thursday over gun control and school safety policies, prompting the senator to call the heckler "a partisan."
The senator, along with his fellow passengers, was preparing to exit the plane landing in Texas when a passenger filmed Cruz and began pressing him with questions. "We’re in Houston? I thought we were going to Cancun," the male voice said in a video posted to Twitter. It was an apparent reference to a family vacation Cruz took last year amid statewide power outages.
The man then got the senator’s attention by saying, "Senator, thank you for everything you’ve done since Uvalde. All those podcast episodes must have raised a lot of money for you."
