Senator Cruz Visits Goodfellow AFB and Meets With Veterans in San Angelo
SAN ANGELO, TX -- The contrast between the two men running for United States Junior Senator from Texas couldn't be more evident than it was at the Heights Baptist Church Wednesday night.
Senator Ted Cruz met with military veterans in a church sanctuary and sat looking them in the eye answering their questions about veteran's health care and the stories of how the system has let them down.
The Senator's Democratic opponent has been in San Angelo four times. Last week, Beto O'Rourke skipped the largest summit on energy in West Texas where dozens of lawmakers were in attendance to hold a dancing and drinking campaign stop in San Angelo.
Cruz's carefully planned visit was orchestrated by the Concerned Veterans of America.
The Senator discussed issues facing veterans and listened to their concerns about health care and the difficulties many veterans face today getting health care.
Senator Cruz's visit was important for many reasons and we'll go through all of those beginning Thursday.
