Presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) missed the vote on Loretta Lynch’s nomination for attorney general despite being one of her most vocal opponents in the upper chamber.
Cruz, who had slammed GOP leaders for allowing the nomination to move forward, was the only senator to miss the vote.
While the senator’s whereabouts are unclear, it’s possible that he was flying back to Texas for a presidential fundraiser that is being held for him in Dallas.
It’s also possible that he’s a blowhard who talks a tough game and gets the crowd all riled up but retreats as soon as it’s clear he’s going to lose. Typical coward.
