Republican Senator Ted Cruz Visits Port of Corpus Christi

One of the two Texas senators paid a visit to the Sparkling City on the Bay this week.

US Senator Ted Cruz visited the city and port of Corpus Christi on Tuesday to meet with local officials and conclude his trip with a boat trip on the Corpus Christi Ship Channel.

After leaving the boat to enter the Solomon P. Ortiz International Center, the three-year-old Republican stood next to Sean Strawbridge, the chief executive officer of the port, to give a brief press conference about the trip and questions from local media to answer.

Growth of city, port

Houston native, Cruz said he was happy to be in the “vibrant and growing” Coastal Bend, which he says has experienced tremendous growth and now plays a vital role in the country’s energy market.
