A Cuban American Father’s Day

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) celebrates a Cuban American Father's Day.

Ted Cruz celebrates Father’s Day: My Dad has been my hero

[...] My own Dad has been my hero my entire life. He is a man of faith and deep integrity, a man who loves liberty with all his heart. His truly American story of fleeing oppression in Cuba with nothing more than $100 to his name and finding success through hard work and perserverence has inspired me my entire life.

    Met Rafael Cruz a few years ago @ tea party rally where he told his story; it was wonderful and stunning. Since then, have talked to him a couple of times and it is always a treat: a real gentleman, decent and articulate, who has not forgotten his humble roots, and who always tells you about his son. He's affable and always smiles, and forever defends Ted from the usual suspects. He does us proud.
