Social media-savvy Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has expanded his offerings to Snapchat with an @SenTedCruz account he debuted during his Monday trip to the Johnson Space Center, where the chairman for the Senate's space subcommittee politicked for America leading the space race through NASA in his home state.

Politicians have been using social media more and more in attempts to reach voters, especially younger ones.

Snapchat is a popular social media platform for millennials. This is not Cruz's first foray into Snapchat, as The Huffington Post wrote Monday.

The Senator had previously trolled Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump from his @cruz4president account during the primary debate season this winter.

Cruz visited the Johnson Space Center to discuss the progress of Orion, a NASA spacecraft, with Orion program manager Mark Geyer and Johnson Space Center director Dr. Ellen Ochoa.

The Government Accountability Office had warned in July that NASA "struggles with poor cost estimation, weak oversight and risk underestimation," according to The Washington Post.
