There were five seconds in the Texas Senate debate that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) would probably like to redo.
Following a conversation about civility in politics, Cruz was asked to say something that he has done outside of his duties as an elected official that has helped the people.
Cruz stood in deafening silence unable to answer. He let out a sharp exhale and shook his head while looking down at his podium.
It was such an embarrassing moment that the audience even began to laugh.
