Cruz jokes Orlando is nice, but not as nice as Cancun


ORLANDO — Sen. Ted Cruz is poking fun at the backlash he has received over traveling to Mexico as a winter storm wreaked havoc on his constituents in Texas.

“Orlando is awesome!” Mr. Cruz said Friday at CPAC. “It is not as nice as Cancun, but it’s nice!”

Mr. Cruz traveled with his wife and children to a Ritz-Carlton in Cancun last week to escape the harsh conditions in Texas, where residents were left without power for days. 

The decision sparked a firestorm of controversy and Mr. Cruz hopped on the next flight back home.

He later said it was a “mistake.”
