Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is reportedly on the way back to Texas after photos of him flying to Cancun went viral this week.
Punchbowl News's Jake Sherman dug up flight records showing that someone with a name similar to Cruz's had booked a flight from Cancun to Houston.
According to the records, Cruz narrowly missed his chance to upgrade to businesses class, presumably leaving the senator in economy-class seating.
News of Cruz's apparent return comes soon after Fox News confirmed that he had traveled to Cancun despite a massive power outage in Texas.
Here's the upgrade list for this afternoon's flight from Cancun to Houston.
Looks like @tedcruz is on his way back, @danpfeiffer. He's just narrowly missing the upgrade list
That's assuming that “cru, r" is him. And I do. pic.twitter.com/CqfKa5rJfG
