Woman Sneaks In Anti-Ted Cruz Message During Photo With Ted Cruz

The guy makes it too easy sometimes.

On Saturday, a Twitter user going by the name “Sukie,” with the handle @FroggyBottomPnd, posted a photo of a young woman standing alongside Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R).

As Cruz likely didn’t know, the young woman had opened her jacket just before the photo was taken, revealing a small sign on a lanyard reading, “Texas deserves better than Cruz!”

Twitter user @LazyyMillennial and Austin resident Rebecca identifies herself as the young woman in the photo. The picture, she says in her feed, was taken at the airport after a flight from Washington to Texas.

Here is her original tweet: “Got to meet someone who supposedly represents me today. Not for much longer, though! #BetoForTexas.”

Cruz, a failed 2016 GOP presidential candidate, is up for re-election in November, facing Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke. O’Rourke has a tough road ahead of him, but he did raise more money than Cruz in the first six weeks of the year.

This story has been updated with the @LazyyMillennial’s Twitter post.
