Sen. Ted Cruz released his first ad in his re-election bid highlighting his efforts to provide relief for victims of Hurricane Harvey last year.
The ad says Cruz “brought home billions in disaster relief” and passed tax relief for people affected by the hurricane over scenes of the senator touring hard-hit areas and comforting survivors.
A news release said the ad will be played in the Beaumont media market, which is near the Texas-Louisiana border and one of the harder-hit areas. The Beaumont market is also one of the less expensive of the 20 media markets in the state.
The ad ends with saying “When the hurricane hit, you stood up for Texas and Ted Cruz stood up for you.”
