Super PAC Really American is raising funds to put up billboards in Texas calling GOP Sen. Ted Cruz a traitor over his role in “riling up the domestic terrorists on January 6th by refusing to accept the results of the election, even after the attack.”
“Rioters who broke into the Senate were quoted as saying Cruz "would want us to do this,” the group wrote on its fundraising page.
“That's why we're crowdfunding these billboards in his hometown in Texas to remind his voters and neighbors that Ted Cruz is a traitor and also betrayed this country. He must face consequences, electorally and under the law.”
It’s the second campaign targeting Cruz in the state. The Republican Accountability Project earlier this month kicked off a $1 million billboard campaign calling on congressional members, including Cruz, to resign.
The billboard says: "You lied about the election. The Capitol was attacked. Sen. Cruz: Resign.”
Cruz's office responded to the billboards with this statement: "The left — and some grifters on the right — are consumed by partisan anger and rage. Sen. Cruz will continue to work for 29 million Texans in the Senate."
Really American is also targeting Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley.
