Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is under heavy fire from Lone Star Democrats – including his Democratic opponent in November, Rep. Beto O'Rourke of El Paso – over his presidential campaign's relationship with Cambridge Analytica, the firm Facebook has suspended for using the personal data of 50 million people without their knowledge.

The Cruz presidential campaign paid Cambridge Analytica close to $6 million to help the campaign precisely target and persuade specific types of voters to cast their ballot for Cruz. That data might have helped Cruz jump out to an early lead in the GOP's 2016 presidential sweepstakes: Cruz won the Iowa caucuses with 27.6 percent of the ballots, followed closely by Donald Trump at 24.3 percent and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., at 23.1 percent.
