Sen. Ted Cruz represents 30 million Texans in the U.S. Senate as a passionate fighter for limited government, national security, and economic growth. He has authored over 90 legislative measures that have been signed into law, including:

  • Expanding 529 college savings accounts to allow parents to save for K–12 public, private, and religious education
  • Repealing Obamacare’s individual mandate
  • Imposing sanctions on terrorists who use civilians as human shields, designating North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism
  • Targeting Putin’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline through multiple bills that halted construction and kept it stalled
  • Reauthorizing and reforming NASA
  • Holding dictatorships in South America accountable
  • Ensuring the availability of additional records to help solve Civil Rights cold cases
  • Ending the Department of Defense’s unjust COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

He is also leading the fight in the Senate to support Texas jobs, hold Big Tech accountable to the American people, secure the border, fundamentally reassess the U.S.-China relationship and hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable for covering up the coronavirus pandemic, committing human rights atrocities, and engaging in censorship, propaganda, and espionage in the United States.

In addition to serving in the Senate, Sen. Cruz co-hosts the podcast Verdict with Ted Cruz, where he breaks down the most important news stories of the day and what they mean for the American people. He is also the author of four New York Times Bestsellers. A Time for Truth: Reigniting the Promise of America details his journey as the son of a Cuban immigrant who grew up in Texas and was elected to the United States Senate. One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History explains what happens behind the scenes at the Supreme Court when our constitutional rights are at stake. In the book, Sen. Cruz examines eight constitutional issues and landmark Supreme Court cases that every American should know about, almost all of which he helped litigate. Nearly all of the cases discussed in the book were decided by just one vote. In the book Justice Corrupted: How the Left Weaponized the Legal System, Sen. Cruz lays out how the left has used the mechanisms of government to target their political opponents, especially under Presidents Obama and Biden. In his latest book Unwoke: How to Defeat Cultural Marxism in America, Sen. Cruz delivers a realistic battle plan for defeating the woke assault on America.

Sen. Cruz is a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School. He is a former law clerk to Chief Justice William Rehnquist, and former solicitor general of Texas. He has argued nine cases before the Supreme Court. In November of 2018, he was re-elected to the Senate by the people of Texas.

Sen. Cruz sits on four committees—the Foreign Relations Committee; Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee; Judiciary Committee; and Rules Committee. He serves as the Ranking Member on the Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee. In the Judiciary Committee, he is the Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on The Constitution.
