posted by Hannity Staff - 10.02.18

A hazardous material emergency response team was sent to the campaign offices of Sen. Ted Cruz Tuesday after staffers opened an envelope “containing a white powdery substance.”

According to the Weekly Standard, fire trucks and first responders arrived minutes after Cruz campaign workers reported the incident, with eyewitnesses saying at least one hazmat truck was seen on the premises.

“Two people were taken to the hospital after apparently being exposed to a white powdery substance in an office building at 3200 SW Fwy. The 9th floor of the Phoenix Tower has been evacuated as HFD HazMat is responding to the scene working to determine the nature of the substance,” confirmed the Houston Fire Department.

It remains unclear of the substance tested positive for ricin or other toxic materials.

CRUZIN' AHEAD: New Poll Shows Ted Cruz with 9% Lead over Democratic Challenger

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.18.18

A new poll from Quinnipiac University shows Texas Sen. Ted Cruz opening a slight lead over Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke in recent days; easing GOP concerns over whether the former presidential hopeful can hang on to his seat.

Despite the popular Democrat closing the gap in recent months, Cruz now holds a 54% to 45% advantage over O’Rourke according to the new survey; opening a 9% advantage just weeks before Texans head to the voting booth.

“The Texas U.S. Senate race between Sen. Ted Cruz and Congressman Beto O’Rourke, and Democratic hopes for an upset win there, have boosted talk of a Senate takeover. These numbers may calm that talk,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. “Congressman O’Rourke may be drawing big crowds and media attention, but Texas likely voters like Sen. Cruz better.”

ANTIFA FAIL: DC Restaurant Confirms Cruz Returned After Attack, Finished ‘Exceptional’ Dinner

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.26.18

A spokesperson for the DC-area restaurant where Ted Cruz was confronted by Antifa activists Monday night confirmed the Texas Senator returned minutes after the attack; saying the lawmaker and his wife were able to “finish their exceptional meal” in silence.

The local eatery posted an official statement regarding the confrontation after video of the incident surfaced on social media, saying “Last night, protesters entered Fiola with the apparent purpose of confronting one of our guests.”

“When the situation resolved a few minutes later, our guests returned to thank the staff for their support and to finish their exceptional meal,” added the statement.

Cruz and his wife are the latest example of prominent Republicans to be harassed in public. Earlier this year, Rep. Maxine Waters urged her supporters to confront senior Trump officials and supporters at “gas stations” and “department stores.”
