HOUSTON, TX – Republican Senator Ted Cruz is in Houston in the midst of a whirlwind tour across the state.

He’s the man who tried to shut down Obamacare, but now it seems someone is trying to shut him down permanently.

Last week, Twitter user @Armyvet54 posted some not so nice things about Cruz.

Law enforcement is now looking into the threats, while Cruz is looking to the future.
