Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) told a rally crowd in Humble, Texas that his opponent would turn Texas into California by bringing “tofu, silicon and dyed hair,” according to a Reuters reporter.
James Oliphant of Reuters was at the rally, where Cruz was asked repeatedly about a White House aide’s comments suggesting that he could lose to Democratic opponent Beto O’Rourke because he is unlikable.
Cruz refused to comment claiming he had not yet read the report.
During his stump speech, the allegedly unlikeable Republican took on dyed hair—his own wife, Heidi, having presumably developed naturally blonde hair following college.
The Democrats, Cruz tells the crowd, want to turn Texas into California with their “tofu, silicon, and dyed hair.”
