Ted Cruz's wife said family wanted to flee 'FREEZING' home to luxury $309-a-night Ritz-Carlton Cancun resort, texts show

REPUBLICAN Senator Ted Cruz’s wife planned a Cancun getaway to escape the “FREEZING” weather in Texas, text messages reveal. 

Heidi Cruz wanted her family to stay at the Ritz Carlton in Cancun, Mexico, and noted that the room price was $309 per night, according to texts obtained by The New York Times on Thursday. 

She texted on Wednesday that the Cruz home was “FREEZING” and invited others to fly to the Ritz Carlton where they had stayed “many times.” 

“Anyone can or want to leave for the week?” wrote Heidi Cruz, who is a managing director at Goldman Sachs. 

“We may go to Cancun.”

The text messages were confirmed to The Times by a second person who was on the thread who did not want to be identified because the conversation was private. 

Heidi Cruz also texted that there was a “direct flight” and that Cancun had “hotels w capacity. Seriously.” 

She said they could depart on Wednesday afternoon and return on Sunday, and stay at the Ritz Carlton which is oceanfront. 

People on the group chat apparently did not show great interest in the Cancun getaway, prompting Heidi Cruz to make a different offer.

“We have gas stove so at least we can heat water little that there is happy to help anyone we can too,” she said.

The text messages emerged after critics accused Ted Cruz of abandoning his state in crisis as it got ravaged by a record-breaking snowstorm.

On Thursday, photos circulated Twitter showing a man who looked like the Republican senator on a flight to Cancun.

Ted Cruz claimed he flew to Mexico to simply drop off his daughters for the vacation in Mexico.
