Cruz Sends Obama Map From Fundraisers To TX Border

From the CBS Houston affiliate, KIKK:

Cruz Sends Obama Map With Directions From Fundraisers To Border Towns

By Benjamin Fearnow [sic] | July 9, 2014

Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has joined Texas Gov. Rick Perry in calling on President Barack Obama to visit the Mexican border personally, with Cruz sending Obama actual directions to the border from the president’s planned fundraiser stops in Austin and Dallas.

Cruz took to Twitter to invite Obama to take a look at the border itself amid a growing immigration crisis along the southern border with Mexico. “If President Obama wants to have a real border meeting with GovernorPerry, here are a couple suggested detours,” Cruz tweeted on Tuesday.

The maps show driving routes from Austin to the border town of Laredo (235 miles, 3 hours) and Dallas to border town McAllen (506 miles, 7 hours and 29 minutes)…

We need a lot more Ted Cruzes.

By the way, Obama is still in Texas. He is going to attend another fundraiser today.

Meanwhile, we have this from the Associated Press, of all places:

Obama raises money for Senate Democrat Udall – without Udall

By Steve Holland | July 9, 2014

DENVER (Reuters) – What if President Barack Obama came to your fund-raising event and you did not attend? That’s what happened on Wednesday in Denver when Obama raised money for Colorado Senator Mark Udall, a Democrat who is facing a stiff challenge to re-election in November.

Primarily because Mr. Udall is widely considered to have cast the deciding vote on Obama-Care. (Which Udall has furiously denied ever since.)

His non-attendance raised questions as to whether he did not want to appear personally with Obama as he tries to fight off a tough challenge from Republican U.S. Representative Cory Gardner. Udall’s seat could be key in the Republican drive to capture control of the U.S. Senate.

Udall’s campaign said the senator was not able to be at the event because he needed to be in Washington to vote for the Senate confirmation of Julian Castro as housing secretary. Castro sailed through on a bipartisan 71-26 vote…

As if any hardcore socialist named ‘Castro’ would ever lose a vote in the Democrat controlled Senate.
